US Airport security agents told to remove TikTok from phones

Security agents at US airports are being told to face the music and kick their TikTok video addiction.

On Sunday, the US Transport Security Agency (TSA) were told to stop using the viral social media platform over security concerns.

The app which is popular with millions of teens and young adults, has come under the scrutiny of the US government. The Chinese-owned app was the subject of a national security review at the beginning of the year.

This resulted in TikTok being banned from government owned smartphones in other agencies including the US Navy. However, it was only this weekend that the head of the airport and travel security agency David Pekoske was instructed to remove the app from staff phones.
