TikTok says it has not participated in any Australian security investigations | Instant News

CANBERRA, Australia (AP) – TikTok executives have told a Senate committee they lobbied Australian lawmakers but did not engage with investigators before the government concluded the video-sharing app did not pose a security threat. The executives were questioned by a committee examining foreign interference in Australia via social media. The Chinese-owned app has come under intense scrutiny in Australia as President Donald Trump threatened to ban it from the United States on national security grounds. Committee chair Jenny McAllister, an opposition senator, said the Home Affairs Department’s failure to include TikTok in its security investigation “was extraordinary to me.”
