- The United Kingdom on Thursday announced plans to ban the Chinese-owned video app TikTok on government devices.
- Britain’s move follows similar rules in the U.S. and European Union.
- Cabinet office minister Oliver Dowden said the ban would not extend to personal devices for govenment employees.
Exemptions for the use of TikTok on government devices are being implemented where necessary for work purposes, but “will only be granted by security teams on a case-by-case basis, with ministerial clearance as appropriate, and with security mitigations put in place,” the government said.
