(Bismarck, ND) -- Starting July first, the social media platform TikTok will be banned from all state university system devices and networks.

The North Dakota Board of Higher Education decision follows a warning from the federal government about security breaches and possible Chinese surveillance through TikTok.

Students will still be able to use the app, just not on NDUS devices and networks.

TikTok is currently banned on federal and state devices in North Dakota.
