TikTok migrates U.S. user data to Oracle servers

TikTok, the popular video app based in China, has completed the migration of its U.S. users’ information to servers at Oracle, in a move that could address U.S. regulatory concerns over data integrity, Reuters reported.

The move comes nearly two years after a U.S. national security panel ordered ByteDance to divest TikTok because of fears that U.S. user data could be passed on to China’s government.

Oracle had discussed acquiring a minority stake in TikTok in 2020, when ByteDance was under U.S. pressure to sell the video sharing app. Some of TikTok’s data is stored on Alphabet’s Google Cloud.
