The UK Parliament banned TikTok on local networks and staff devices, adding to high-profile restrictions on the video-sharing platform in western nations amid mounting security concerns.

“Cyber security is a top priority for Parliament,” the legislature said in a statement. “The commissions of both the House of Commons and Lords have decided that TikTok will be blocked.”
