Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers has signed an executive order banning the social media app TikTok and other technologies from state-issued devices.

The executive order comes as the Department of Administrations division of enterprise technology wants to ban software and apps that could pose cyber security threats.

Governor Evers says protecting the digital privacy of our state is a top priority, and that he trusts the professionals who work for the state to protect the people of Wisconsin.
