• ByteDance allowed a Chinese Communist Party unit to censor content and access data, a new lawsuit alleges.
  • The unit, referred to as the “Committee,” even had a “death switch” to turn off certain apps.
  • ByteDance built a “backdoor channel” to enable CCP access to US user data, the suit alleges.
