Senate approves measure to prohibit TikTok on devices used by the US government.

The Senate passed a bill late Wednesday banning federal employees from using TikTok on government-issued devices. It is the latest attempt by Republicans to clamp down on the popular video-sharing app. If approved, the bill would align the federal government with the increasing number of Republican states that have similar bans. Alabama joins four other states in banning TikTok from some state government devices. Critics say the app poses a threat to U.S. national security because of its links to China.
