Sask. government bans TikTok

In statement this afternoon, Government of Saskatchewan confirms it has banned the use of TikTok on government devices.
Government employees in Sask. need to say goodbye to any TikTok apps still remaining on their devices — assuming they had them to begin with.

REGINA - The Government of Saskatchewan is the latest in Canada to ban the use of TikTok.

The move was announced in a statement from the province over the noon hour. It reads as follows: 

"Following discussion with the federal Chief Information Officer and the provincial Information & Privacy Commissioner, the Government of Saskatchewan is banning the TikTok application from all government-owned devices pending the results of the federal threat assessment. This direction applies to all ministries, crowns and agencies; and is also being adopted by the government caucus."

The move follows similar announcements from the Government of Canada as well as other Canadian provinces.
