Amazon said an email asking its employees to remove the TikTok app from all mobile devices that can access their company email was sent in error, BBC reported.

"This morning's email to some of our employees was sent in error. There is no change to our policies right now with regard to TikTok", a company spokesperson told the BBC.

An email sent noted that the app should be deleted amid some "security risks".

"Due to security risk, the TikTok app is no longer permitted on mobile devices that access Amazon email. 

"If you have TikTok on your device, you must remove it by July 10 to retain mobile access to Amazon email", it read.
