United States Senators urged the Department of Justice (DoJ) to investigate Zoom Video Communications Inc. and ByteDance Ltd.'s TikTok.

Democrat Richard Blumenthal and Republican Josh Hawley stated an inquiry was needed to determine whether the two companies shared data from US citizens with Beijing.

"Based on numerous reports, we are extremely concerned that Zoom and TikTok have disclosed private information about Americans to the PRC and engaged in censorship on behalf of the Chinese government," the two senators said in a letter sent to DoJ.
