China reportedly asked some American tech companies to pledge that their products are "secure and controllable," and won't harm the country's national security.
That's according to a new report from The New York Times. The paper reports some companies received documents from the Chinese government asking them to pledge to comply with its policies, including potentially having to "turn user data and intellectual property over to the government."
The Times article doesn't say which companies received a letter, but this is just China's latest attempt to control foreign technology as it comes to the nation.
