As privacy continues to be a major talking point in tech, the FCC has now officially declared Huawei and ZTE as national security threats. 5G is currently in the process of becoming more widely available and that has raised some concerns about privacy.

The Federal Communications Commission, the FCC, is tasked with protecting the American communication infrastructure from security risks.
