Ban On TikTok Bill Passes U.S. Senate

If the bill proceeds, the law would ban the TikTok app on all government owned phones and other devices.

The U.S. Senate has unanimously voted to approve a bill that would ban a social media platform from all government devices.

The “No TikTok on Government Devices Act” was introduced by Senator Josh Hawley and has now taken a step closer to becoming official law.

If the bill proceeds, the law would ban the TikTok app on all government owned phones and other devices.

Its approval highlights authority concerns that the app’s that are China-owned, could share information gathered from U.S. users with the Chinese Government.

Senator Hawley explained that the app could be used as a spy for the Chinese Communist Party and it has no place on government devices.

Several states have already put the ban into action but for it to be nation wide it will now be sent to the House for review and if approved then to President Biden for signature.
