US bans major Chinese apps, including AliPay and WeChat Pay

Outgoing US President Donald Trump has banned eight high-profile Chinese apps on national security grounds, including well-known payment tools like AliPay and WeChat Pay.

President Trump has signed an executive order arguing that “aggressive actionâ€� must be taken against eight notable Chinese applications – Tencent’s QQ, QQ Wallet, CamScanner, SHAREit, VMate, WPS Office, as well as AliPay and WeChat Pay. The order gives the US Commerce Department 45 days to determine which transactions will be banned under the directive.
