According to a recent request from the FCC, Google and Apple will have to remove the tick. Evidence suggests that the Federal Communications Commission is trying to eliminate the tick.
The head of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has issued a new statement urging Google and Apple to remove the Tic Tac app from their stores. Brendan Carr also tweeted that Tic Tac Toe is not a video app like other similar apps, and that the name is just a pretense. The program collects a large amount of information and sends it to Beijing. Tic Tac Toe, which started its growing trend a few years ago, now has about 1 billion monthly active applications.

Google and Apple have to remove the tick
Some officials and institutions in the United States are trying to address all the important threats to privacy and national security for which social networks such as TickTack are responsible. The issue of tic-tac-toe, however, is a top priority for US politicians, who believe the service is a Chinese spy service that easily provides information to American users in Beijing.
A new report from the FCC chairman says an leaked audio file of 80-session voice conversations at ByteDance shows the company’s engineers talking about non-public data of American users.
The report came just hours after TickTack announced that it had transferred 100 percent of American user data to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. The head of the FCC, however, claimed in a series of tweets that TickTock not only sees users’ videos, but also collects browser history and search history, biometric IDs, draft messages, photos, videos and any other type of data.
The FCC director also tweeted a copy of his letter requesting to remove a tick from Apple and Google stores. The Trump administration had a long battle with the tick, and he even threatened to filter the service, but in the end it did not work out.
