Senate Votes for Government Ban of TikTok

The legislation now goes to the House of Representatives.

The U.S. Senate has unanimously passed the “No TikTok on Government Devices Act.” Senator Josh Hawley of Missouri introduced the legislation that seeks to ban the Chinese-based video-sharing app from government devices.

U.S. officials have increasingly expressed concerns regarding the risks to cybersecurity and national security the app poses. The State Department, Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, and the Transportation Security Administration are among the U.S. agencies that have already banned the use of TikTok on their devices.

The legislation would allow for exceptions for law enforcement activities or national security interests. The bill now moves to the House of Representatives for consideration. 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For members of the Senate as they debate bills surrounding national security.
  • For representatives in the House as they consider the legislation that would ban TikTok from government devices.
  • For the president and his administration as they evaluate national security threats.
