Arizona State University, Northern Arizona University and the University of Arizona have limited access to TikTok on university-managed devices, school officials said.
The move follows a recent executive order from President Joe Biden that gave federal agencies and contractors 30 days to remove the app on government-issued devices. As federal contractors, ASU, NAU and UA are joining a host of schools across the country in banning the popular, video-focused social media app.
ASU’s policy banning TikTok access took effect Monday, ASU spokesperson Veronica Sanchez said. ASU community members, including students, will still be able to access the app on personal devices, she said.
NAU is also removing the app from all university-owned devices, NAU spokesperson Kimberly Ott said.
