The European Commission (EC) has suspended the ability to use the TikTok mobile app on corporate devices, an EC spokesperson said at a briefing.
The European Commission’s Corporate Governance Council has decided to suspend the use of the TikTok mobile app on corporate devices, as well as on personal devices registered in the European Commission’s mobile device system,” she said.
“The reasons why the decision was made is to increase the cybersecurity of the European Commission. The measure is also aimed at protecting the European Commission from threats and actions in the field of cybersecurity that can be used for cyber attacks on the corporate environment of the Commission,” she added.
The European Commission does not have its own TikTok account, the EC said.
