Huawei users set to lose Facebook, other apps in Compliance with US Sanctions

Intro

The users of Huawei devices might not have access to Facebook in compliance with the US sanctions against the Chinese technology giant.

The social media giant said it took the step after US President Donald Trump’s order barring Huawei from US technology exports over concerns that it works with Chinese intelligence.

A Facebook spokesperson said, “We are reviewing the Commerce Department’s final rule and the more recently issued temporary general license and taking steps to ensure compliance.”

The California company said people with existing Huawei smartphones with Facebook apps will continue to be able to use and download app updates provided by Facebook.
