TikTok came close to being kicked out of the US after the US Senate approved a bill that would have banned TikTok from operating the platform unless it sold its Chinese owner, Byte Dance.

The video-sharing app has millions of users worldwide, but faces growing questions about the security of user data and its ties to the Beijing government.

The legislation, which has already passed both the House of Representatives and the Senate, would, among other things, require the dissolution of TikTok's parent company.

US President Joe Biden has promised to pass the law.
