European Commission Bans TikTok From Staff Phones

They are citing security concerns as the reason

Today, the European Commission (EC) banned staffers from using the Chinese-owned social media app TikTok on their work devices over security concerns, following similar moves in the United States and a growing standoff between China and the West.

Staff members at the commission have been informed that they must remove TikTok from their official devices, as well as from personal devices that have work-related apps installed. The decision will enter into force on March 15.

"This measure aims to protect the commission against cybersecurity threats and actions [that] may be exploited for cyberattacks against the corporate environment of the commission," it said in a statement.
