Urban Tech Story | TikTok banned from UK government devices

Britain has become the latest country to ban ByteDance-owned short-video app TikTok on government devices. Speaking in Parliament, Senior Cabinet Secretary Oliver Dowden announced the ban would take effect immediately, describing it as a “precautionary measure”. The ban, which follows an assessment of TikTok by cybersecurity experts at the UK’s National Cyber ​​Security Centre, applies to the work phones of ministers and civil servants, not their personal phones. At least two UK ministers use TikTok — Michelle Donelan, the science minister, and Grant Shapps, the energy security and zero emissions minister.
