Senate Passed a Bill to Ban TikTok From Government Devices

Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida caused a stir recently when he made a push to ban TikTok in the U.S., introducing a bill that would do exactly that. Rubio’s bill would also ban other apps that are operating out of countries that the Senate considers “adversarial,” including China, Russia, Iran, North Korea, and others.

That bill does not yet have nearly enough support to pass into law, but conversation around banning TikTok has become more widespread in recent months.
