After India, Tiktok is now banned in this country

TikTok Banned in Canada: Canada on Monday announced a ban on the use of Chinese-owned social media app TikTok on government-issued devices due to concerns over privacy and security risks. The ban is a major decision against TikTok, which is owned by Chinese company ByteDance Ltd, as several countries are concerned about the Chinese government taking over their users’ data.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said his government is taking steps to ensure the safety of Canadians online and the ban on TikTok could be the first of many actions taken in this regard.

The ban is effective immediately and employees will no longer be able to download the app in the future. The Treasury Board, which oversees public administration, said TikTok’s data collection practices allowed significant access to phone content. While the board has no evidence of government information being compromised, there are risks of using the app.

Trudeau hopes the ban will encourage Canadians, businesses and individuals to consider their own data security and make informed choices about their use of social media platforms. The ban is a measure to address concerns about the Canadian government and the security of personal information, as well as the misuse of users’ data by the Chinese government.

Finally, Canada’s decision to ban TikTok on government-issued devices is a precautionary step taken to address concerns about privacy and security risks posed by the Chinese-owned social media app. The move aligns with the growing international probe against TikTok and its parent company ByteDance Ltd. It remains to be seen whether other countries will join Canada in taking action against the popular social media app.
