THE US administration has vowed to 'take action' in a matter of days against Chinese software companies that it perceives as a risk to security, in a sign that Washington is set to broaden its offensive beyond the video-sharing app TikTok, reported London's Financial Times.

ByteDance, the Chinese owner of TikTok, is racing to save the app's US operations with a plea to the administration to allow it to sell the unit to Microsoft.



Comments from US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo suggested that additional action against a wider range of Chinese technology companies would follow.



'These Chinese software companies doing business in the United States, whether it's TikTok or WeChat ?? there are countless more . . . are feeding data directly to the Chinese Communist Party, their national security apparatus,' Mr Pompeo told Fox News.
