Provincial government bans TikTok from government devices


The provincial government is banning the social media app TikTok from government devices.


Effective Thursday, the app will no longer be downloaded to devices.


The decision to ban the app was based on several risk factors, including TikTok’s data collection methods.


The permissions require almost complete access to the contents of the phone, making those who have downloaded the app more vulnerable to surveillance.


Additionally, the government says there are concerns about the applicable legal regime that governs the information collected.
