New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy Joins a Group of States that Have Banned Tik Tok

On Monday, New Jersey joined the increasing list of states that have banned TikTok on government equipment.

Gov. Phil Murphy (D-NJ) deemed the Chinese-owned social networking programme “high-risk software” and ordered state agencies to remove it from any state-owned or state-managed devices and set network and installation limitations.

Murphy stated, “Strengthening cybersecurity is essential to ensuring the overall safety and welfare of our state.” “The proactive and preventive steps we are implementing today will safeguard the confidentiality, integrity, and security of information assets controlled by the State of New Jersey. This resolute action will ensure the State’s cybersecurity remains unified against potential adversaries who aim to divide us.”

Governor Kristi Noem (R-SD) issued an executive order in the fall prohibiting the app’s use on state-owned smartphones. This triggered a domino effect with governors following her example. Initially, the movement was dominated by Republican governors, but numerous Democratic leaders have since joined.

On Monday, it was disclosed that the White House maintained a positive relationship with lobbyists for TikTok and its parent firm, ByteDance. According to records, lobbyists visited the White House eight times between July 2021 and August 2022.

Kara Frederick, director of the Tech Policy Center at the Heritage Foundation, stated, “These individuals perform the dirty work of the Chinese party state.”

She continued, “I believe we shouldn’t mince words when it comes to this.” They understand what they are doing.
