Negotiations between the Biden administration and TikTok have stalled as officials raise concerns about the potential national security issues the app could pose, due to its ownership by Chinese company ByteDance.

On Tuesday, a Wall Street Journal report detailed how officials in the government believe TikTok could share information regarding its video recommendation algorithm and how much trust Washington could place in the company.

The government has yet to inform TikTok on how it can address these concerns, according to the Journal, and TikTok confirmed it had not received any updates from the government about any unresolved concerns. This lack of transparent communication has made the path forward for both sides unclear.

"While we can't comment on the specifics of those confidential discussions, we are confident that we are on a path to fully satisfy all reasonable U.S. national security concerns and have already made significant strides toward implementing those solutions," a TikTok spokesperson said in a statement.

Negotiations between the two sides have been aimed at reducing Chinese influence over the U.S. operation of TikTok, without completely severing ties with Chinese ownership, as former President Donald Trump once attempted.

One agreement that has been struck concerns the storage location of U.S. users' data. The Journal report indicates that TikTok will likely store the sensitive data on Oracle servers in the U.S., moving it from TikTok data centers in Virginia and Singapore.

Oracle would take control over security protocols for the data as well, overseeing which TikTok employees would have access to U.S. users' data, according to the report.

The two sides are quickly approaching an impasse, as Republican control of the House are expected to complicate future negotiations. Republican House members have ratcheted up their rhetoric against the app, and have begun to float the idea of an altogether ban.

Republicans are not the only ones concerned about TikTok, and the influence China has on the app. The FBI has also shared its security concerns regarding the app, with the bureau's director Christopher Wray saying "We do have national security concerns at least from the FBI's end about TikTok."

Talking to members of the House Homeland Security Committee in a hearing about worldwide threats, Wray continued, saying: "They include the possibility that the Chinese government could use it to control data collection on millions of users. Or control the recommendation algorithm, which could be used for influence operations if they so chose. Or to control software on millions of devices, which gives it opportunity to potentially technically compromise personal devices."

A complete ban on TikTok is still seen as unlikely, as government officials and representatives from the app continue to reach an understanding of the future of U.S. users' data, and the role the Chinese government has in the company.
