UK bans TikTok on government devices

The United Kingdom banned TikTok from official government devices today, adding to similar restrictions imposed by allies in Canada, the European Union, and the United States.

According to a government announcement, the social media app is not widely used by UK officials, but the measure reflects concerns about TikTok's links to China through its parent company, ByteDance, and the possibility that the Chinese government could pressure the companies to hand over users' personal information.

TikTok has expressed disappointment at the UK's government's decision.
