The United Kingdom banned Tik-Tok on official mobiles

The United Kingdom will prohibit installing the Chinese TikTok application from the firm Bytedance on official government mobile phones for security reasons. The Cabinet Secretary of State, Oliver Dowden, announced this before Parliament in a speech on “security in government apparatus”. British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak is under international pressure from his international partners –especially the US– to join the ban on Tik Tok on official phones that may contain sensitive information. This week, Secretary of State for Security Tom Tugendhat explained that he has asked the National Cyber ​​Security Center to review the app, to make sure it does not pose a threat. The White House, the Government of Canada, the European Commission and the European Parliament are some of the institutions that have vetoed the use of TikTok on the corporate devices of their employees. TikTok denies that it facilitates access of the Chinese Government to the data of its users and speaks of “prejudices” because it is a company from that country. It also denies that it collects more user data than other social media companies, and insists that it operates independently with its own management team.
