Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers said Tuesday that his administration is keeping a close eye on state devices that use TikTok, a popular social media app that national lawmakers proposed banning just a day earlier.
Evers told the Wisconsin State Journal that his office is in frequent contact with the FBI and emergency management officials to make sure the app doesn’t pose a security risk, but the governor said he isn’t looking to outlaw the platform on state devices.
“It is a small number of people who actually use it,” Evers said. “That said, we take it seriously.”
