(AURN News) — Love the deals you get on Temu? Well, according to one congressman, the app may be spying on you. In a letter to President Joe Biden, Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) has raised the alarm over the popular shopping app, alleging that the Chinese-owned platform may be “harvesting vast amounts of personal information from American consumers.”

The senator’s letter cites concerns that Temu’s data-gathering practices could be “even more dangerous than TikTok’s,” pointing to a lawsuit that claims the app can access “everything on your phone.” Cotton urged the Biden administration to address Temu’s alleged ties to the Chinese government, as well as potential violations of U.S. laws and regulations.

“As with TikTok and other invasive Chinese apps, Temu has no place in America,” Cotton wrote in the letter, referencing the ongoing debate over the video-sharing platform’s national security risks.

This latest controversy comes amid a broader push to scrutinize Chinese-owned apps over privacy and spying concerns. Google Play recently removed Temu’s parent company Pinduoduo’s (PDD) app due to the discovery of harmful malware that could access users’ biometric data and information about their Wi-Fi networks.
