Montana becomes first US state to pass bill banning TikTok

Lawmakers in the US state of Montana voted Friday to ban the social media app, TikTok, News.Az reports citing Anadolu Agency. 

Montana is the first state to pass a bill banning the popular Chinese-owned app in the US because of security concerns.

The bill bans app stores from offering users the ability to download the app.

If the bill is signed by Gov. Greg Gianforte the ban would take effect in January.

The US and other countries have already restricted TikTok from government devices because of fears that China could gain access to user data.
