Ahuntsic, Conestoga, Concordia ban TikTok on institutional devices


As institutions continue to consider TikTok on institutional devices, Collège Ahuntsic, Conestoga College, and Concordia University have announced that the app will not be allowed on institution-owned devices. Ahuntsic issued a statement indicating that the app will be blocked across its internet network and removed from college-owned devices after the college received a directive from the provincial government prohibiting its use. Conestoga will ban TikTok on all its devices – including computers, tablets, and phones – and will suspend the institution’s TikTok accounts. Concordia is requiring those who have university-funded smart phones and tablets to uninstall the app. CTV News reports that Wilfrid Laurier University and the University of Waterloo are monitoring the situation.
