The House of Common and the House of Lords have announced TikTok will be blocked on ‘all parliamentary devices and the wider parliamentary network’, for reasons of cyber security.
Last week the social media app was banned from UK government phones.
Currently TikTok CEO Shou Zi Chew is being questioned by US lawmakers in Congress over what data TikTok collects. Chairwomen Cathy Rodgers says the US should ban the app due to security concerns over its connections to China and the privacy of people’s data. However in his opening statement, Shou Zi Chew says all data is safely stores in the US.
