In a new report by the Wall Street Journal, Facebook has been sent a preliminary order by a European Union privacy regulator that will suspend data transfers regarding EU users to the US.

The main concern for this order is due to security reasons from the European side of things. The EU wants to stem this flow of information to outside sources in fear of possible surveillance practices by the US government.

This situation reflects the US government’s work to try banning Chinese-owned apps, such as the ongoing battle with TikTok.
