In an email sent to all its employees, the Amazon has directed all its employees to delete Tik Tok from their mobile phones. An email sent to the employees said that this was being done in view of the security reasons.

But, within five hours, Amazon sent another main to the employees in which it said: 'This morning's email to some of our employees was sent in error. There is no change to our policies right now with regard to TikTok. 'The reasons for this reversal are not known.
