The European Union (EU) Commission has instructed its employees to remove the TikTok application from their private and corporate phones.
According to the news on the Politico website, the EU Commission, which operates as the executive body of the Union, banned the use of social media application TikTok due to security concerns.
In this context, all Commission employees were instructed in the morning to remove the application from their personal or corporate devices with any work-related application installed.
