New Zealand Joins the Ranks of Countries Banning TikTok on Government Devices
TikTok has been removed from some government-owned devices in New Zealand, which has now been added to the expanding list of nations and regions to do so. Contrary to other places, not all government personnel are subject to the restriction. Although the country’s defence force and Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade claimed they had also blocked TikTok on work devices, it is only available on devices with connection to New Zealand’s parliamentary network.
By March’s end, the prohibition will be in effect. For people that require access to TikTok in order to perform their duties, there might be some exceptions.
