Canadian universities are joining the federal government in restricting the use of TikTok, a popular social media app. The University of British Columbia, Dalhousie University, McGill University, and Memorial University of Newfoundland have either implemented or are planning to enact policies or recommendations on the use of the app. Canada has joined a growing number of countries in North America, Europe, and the Asia-Pacific region that have banned TikTok from government devices due to privacy and cybersecurity concerns. U.S. officials have said TikTok is a national security risk, with the FBI and Federal Communications Commission warning that Chinese developer ByteDance could share user data with China’s authoritarian government.
