The UK is banning TikTok on government devices — joining the US, Canada, and the EU — despite a charm offensive dubbed 'Project Clover,' report says
TikTok executives met with British policy advisers last Monday, but attendees told the WSJ they remained skeptical of its ability to protect data.

TikTok execs had doubled down on efforts to convince UK policy advisers that their data is safe, but the UK will join the EU, US, Canada and other countries in banning TikTok. The move comes after a UK security review.

If they really care about security, they should ban and dissolve all social media companies entirely. Otherwise this is just xenophobic targeting of non-Anglosphere and/or Chinese companies, like Huawei and ZTE in the past.
