TikTok has announced that its head of US trust and safety, Eric Han, is all set leave the company.

Han’s resignation will come as a setback as it fights multiple challenges including the possible ban in the U.S. TikTok has not only been called out in the U.S. but also several in other countries for its allegedly unethical data privacy practices. The popular Chinse short video app, on other hand, has outrightly denied these allegations.
