According to BBC, the UK Parliament closed its TikTok account last August. The Downing Street TikTok page has not been updated since Boris Johnson left office in September last year but others including the MoD and Energy Secretary Grant Shapps, have updated their pages more recently.
Prime Minister Rishi Sunak is poised to ban the use of the Chinese social media app TikTok on government phones over security fears, a person familiar with the matter said.
The restriction will apply to devices used by civil servants and ministers, according to the person, who requested anonymity discussing a policy that’s yet to be announced. Cabinet Office Minister Oliver Dowden is scheduled to make a statement to the House of Commons on the “security of government devices” in the early afternoon.
A BBC report stated that earlier this week, the prime minister said the UK would "look at what our allies are doing".
