Amazon has told employees to delete the popular video app TikTok from phones on which they use Amazon email, citing security risks from the China-owned app. The notice said employees must delete the app by Friday to keep access to Amazon email.

Workers would still be allowed to use TikTok from an Amazon laptop browser. In an emailed statement, TikTok said that Amazon did not notify it before sending the email.
