There is a chance the ban could be rescinded if a deal is done between the app’s owner ByteDance and technology giant Oracle.

People in the US will be banned from downloading TikTok from this Sunday.

The US commerce department said that starting 20 September, Americans will not be able to get the popular video-sharing app.

The ban will also cover the messaging app WeChat.

President Donald Trump could still withdraw the ban before Sunday evening – if a deal is done between TikTok‘s Chinese owners ByteDance and US technology giant Oracle.

The two firms are in talks to create a new company, TikTok Global, that aims to address the White House’s concerns about the security of its users’ data, with Oracle having moved ahead of Microsoft in the race for a deal.
