Joe Biden, President of the United States, signed an executive order to revoke the bans of the TikTok and WeChat applications, previously sanctioned by Donald Trump.

Biden remarked that the Secretary of Commerce will investigate both applications to see if they really present security problems for the United States. During this period, downloads will not be prohibited in that territory.

"The administration is committed to promoting an open, interoperable, reliable and secure Internet and to the protection of human rights online and offline, and to the support of a vibrant global digital economy," a senior official in the current administration told to The Verge.

The order replaces a series of measures adopted by Trump last year that blocked applications such as TikTok, WeChat, and Aliplay from US app stores.
