TikTok is Being Ban in U.S Universities

The famous tiktok app is being ban by public universities across the U.S.

At least 20 public universities have made the decision to ban the app from their servers or have recommended their students to remove the app from their personal devices, according to NBC News. Most of the universities are acting under pressure from state lawmakers—some of whom have passed laws banning TikTok from state-owned devices.

Why universities are banning TikTok

The bans stem from security concerns regarding the app's China-based parent company ByteDance. U.S. security experts are worried ByteDance could share its extensive collection of data on American users with the Chinese government.

We do have national security concerns, said FBI Director Christopher Wray at a Homeland Security Committee hearing in November. They include the possibility that the Chinese government could use it to control data collection on millions of users.

More than 30 states have ramped up their efforts to limit access to the app and many public universities, which fall under the purview of state laws, are following suit. In the case of Texas A&M, one of the largest public universities in the country with nearly 75,000 students, TikTok has been totally banned.
