Saskatchewan has joined the Federal government, along with other provinces, in banning the use of TikTok on government-owned mobile devices.
Canada's Chief Information Officer recently determined that the video-sharing platform posed an "unacceptable" level of risk to privacy and security.
The City of Weyburn provided an official statement on the matter:
The City of Weyburn has a TikTok account utilized for communication campaigns in the past, but it is not an actively used platform by the City.
Only one City of Weyburn employee has access to this account on a city-issued device. Since the recent direction by Saskatchewan’s Information and Privacy Commissioner, this app has been removed from that device as a precaution.
