Cloutier said that the Ministry of Commerce’s September summary explained the basic problems of the application and pointed out that TikTok is not isolated from the Chinese edition of the Douyin application or the Bytedance method of the parent company, and that “features include storage, internal control, and part of the algorithm is still shared with other byte-beating goods.”

Cloutier said the software of TikTok and Douyin is “fully autonomous,” which means that each application’s source code and user details are kept separately. Outdated Chinese IP address source code has been deleted from the old version of the TikTok framework, bugs in accessing TikTok user authorization content, and anti-spam programs that have access to serial data have also been deleted.
