TikTok is an extremely popular but also very controversial social network. It is, of course, due to “direct ties” to the Chinese regime, which wakes practically all world powers, including the US, from their peaceful sleep. Now comes the first official ban My TikTok on US territory, and the state of Montana advocated for it.

From promises to actions

We already told you about the fact that individual states of the United States are considering blocking TikTok they informed and this news flew through the media about a month ago. The first to face this problem was Montana, which accepted the coveted proposal and was just waiting for the local governor to sign it.

And so it happened now. Montana Governor Greg Gianforte signed the bill, making Montana the first US state to ban TikTok. On his Twitter about it informed the governor himself, however, of course, TikTok will not just give up.

Privacy first

The governor said in a statement that TikTok’s data sharing with the Chinese government is well documented, although that is not entirely true. One spying incident has occurred in the past, but there is no direct evidence of data sharing with the Chinese regime at this time.

How informs agency Reuters, application stores that will offer TikTok in Montana are subject to a fine of $10,000 (219,000 crowns). However, officials of the social network called the ban decision unconstitutional and a lawsuit is likely to follow.

Montata officially without TikTok next year

The signed bill banning TikTok in Montana will go into effect early next year, but a lot can happen before then. It is quite possible that the operators of the social network will succeed in court, and the truth is that not everyone accepts the ban on TikTok. This is because it is a relatively large and effective platform for companies to reach potential customers, so many entities will try to keep TikTok on the displays in Montana.
