As TikTok faces threats of a ban in the U.S over privacy and national security concerns, the Senate on Thursday passed a measure that would prohibit the app on government-issued devices.
The No TikTok on Government Devices Act, sponsored by Sen. Josh Hawley (R-M.O.), passed the Senate unanimously.
The bill bans federal employees, including members of Congress, from downloading TikTok on government-issued devices.
