UK Bans TikTok:-
Joining the likes of the United States, Canada, the European Union, and India, on Thursday the UK banned TikTok from government devices due to security concerns over the Chinese-owned social media video app. “The usage of government data and information by the app could be unsafe. Therefore, we are banning TikTok on government devices because the protection of sensitive government data must come first. Moreover, the functionality of other data-extracting applications will also be monitored,” the Cabinet Office minister commented.  UK Bans TikTok UK Bans TikTok The UK banned TikTok following a security investigation that assessed the risks and vulnerability associated with how sensitive data and information are collected and misused by the Chinese-owned social media platform. As per reports, users need to authorize TikTok to access any data that is currently present on their devices. If these permissions are granted, TikTok will have access to contacts, user content, and geolocation information on the device.  All government departments are subjected to the ban on using TikTok on official government devices. As of now, the restriction does not extend to personal devices used by government workers, ministers, or the general public. However, before downloading and using any social media platform, individuals are suggested to familiarize themselves with its data regulations. Despite the ban, several specific exceptions for using TikTok on government smartphones are being implicated. Security teams will only provide exemptions under specific circumstances after considering ministry clearance and other security issues. These exclusions will apply to people working in pertinent law enforcement positions and by cyber security officials for projects.  UK Bans TikTok UK Bans TikTok The Chinese-based company referred to the UK's decision to ban the application as a political one. “We think the UK banned TikTok mainly because of geopolitics and fundamental misconceptions. We are still committed to cooperating with the authorities to address any issues”, a spokesperson for TikTok added.  For more updates keep visiting our website where we provide unbiased, true, and, top stories of the world.
