U.S. House of Representatives bans TikTok from official devices
Lawmakers and staff members who have the short form video hosting app on a House mobile device must uninstall it.
An internal notice announcing the change identified TikTok as, “High risk to users due to a number of security risks.”
Separately, the government is expected to soon ban TikTok from all federal devices.
That change is part of legislation included in the $1.7 trillion government funding bill awaiting President Biden’s signature.
