Judge lifts WeChat ban in the United States

After the Chinese Tik Tok, now it is the turn of the messaging application to see the blockade being prevented, in this case, by the American justice.

It is a busy weekend for Chinese technology. After the Chinese Tik Tok, now is the time for the WeChat messaging application, developed by Tencent, to see the blockade in the United States being prevented, in this case, by the American justice itself.

The day before the ban came into effect, Judge Laurel Beeler, of a San Francisco court, issued a preliminary warrant - at the request of the WeChat Users Alliance - in which she argues that the prohibitions on app would violate the freedom of expression rights of millions of Chinese-speaking Americans who depend on the platform to communicate either within the United States or with family and friends in China, writes “Bloomberg”This Sunday.

The United States has claimed that WeChat is a threat to national security because Tencent is linked to the Chinese Communist Party, which can use the mobile application to spread advertising, track users and steal personal data. The decision to prevent the use of app is now on hold.

At a hearing this weekend, lawyer Michael Drezner, who represents the Donald Trump government, said that the anxiety and uncertainty that WeChat users in the United States might experience because of these prohibitions does not give them the right to an order that stop implementing them.
