Amazon had sent an email prohibiting its employees from having the social app on their smartphones

But, the order was rectified as stated by a company spokesperson.

TikTok faces a brand reputation problem due to security concerns

During the week we talked about the pressures he is undergoing TikTok after its prohibition, along with other applications in India, and the possibility that this will also happen in the United States.

Following this matter, it was disclosed that Amazon He would have banned his employees from having the app on their smartphones and asked them to remove it. However, it seems that he has changed his mind.

A mistake, says the brand

The email sent to the workers of the e-commerce giant was disseminated through social networks and various media, which apparently was not contemplated by the company.

This was because it transpired that Amazon retracted and on Friday afternoon said that the email urging its staff to remove TikTok from their phones was an error.

“This morning’s email to some of our employees was sent by mistake. (…) There are no changes to our policies at this time regarding TikTok, ”said a Seattle-based tech spokesperson quoted by CNN.

His words correspond to what was said in the email that was broadcast through various channels in which he asks employees to remove the application from their phones for security reasons.

“Due to security risks, the TikTok app is no longer allowed on mobile devices that access Amazon email. (…) If you have TikTok on your device, you must delete it before July 10 to retain mobile access to Amazon email. At this time, it is allowed to use TikTok from the browser on your Amazon laptop, « said the email reported by The New York Times journalist Taylor Lorenz.

In this sense, the spokesperson quoted by CNN detailed that the corresponding area was not consulted before sending said notification, so they decided to rectify.

“We welcome a dialogue so that we can address any issues you may have and allow your team to continue to participate in our community. (…) We are proud that tens of millions of Americans turn to TikTok for entertainment, inspiration and connection, including many of Amazon’s employees and contractors who have been at the forefront of this pandemic, ”he added.
