Senate bill would ban TikTok from government phones
Concerns over cybersecurity risk and possible spying by China have already brought about bans from DHS, DoD, TSA, and the State Department. On Thursday, two US senators introduced a bill that would ban all federal employees from using the Chinese singing/dancing/jokey platform on government phones. The bill comes from Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Rick Scott (R-FLA).
It would expand on current TikTok bans from the State Department, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Department of Defense (DoD), and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA).
