Board of Regents banning Tik Tok on their devices

PIERRE, S.D.(WNAX)- The South Dakota Board of Regents is following the Governors order banning Tik Tok on state owned devices.

Regents Executive Director Brian Maher outlined their options at their meeting last week at the School of Mines in Rapid City.

Maher says the universities are clearing out their devices.

Maher says the ban also extends to off campus marketing.

The ban came about because of fears the Chinese owned company was syphoning off data to the Chinese government.
