TikTok Is Under Investigation By The EU For Potential Violations Of New Digital Regulations

NYC Joins Federal Government and Most States in Banning TikTok on City-Owned Phones

New York City joins the federal government and other U.S. states in banning TikTok on government-owned phones.

On Thursday, John Allon, a spokesperson for Mayor Eric Adams, said: “While social media is great at connecting New Yorkers with one another and the city, we have to ensure we are always using these platforms in a secure manner.”

According to Allon, the City’s top cybersecurity officials found TikTok risky for technical networks, directing its removal from city-owned devices within 30 days.

Earlier this year, the federal government ordered employees to delete TikTok from government-issued phones due to concerns about data sharing with China.  Over half of U.S. states have followed suit with similar bans.
