NEW YORK — A TikTok ban is going into effect for New York City workers.
According to a City Hall spokesperson, workers must remove the app from city-owned devices.
In a statement, the spokesperson 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. NYC Cyber Command regularly explores and advances proactive measures to keep New Yorkers’ data safe. As part of these ongoing efforts, NYC Cyber Command determined that the TikTok application posed a security threat to the city’s technical networks and directed its removal from city-owned devices.”
Workers have 30 days to get rid of the app.
