    On Friday, lawmakers in the US state of Montana decided to outlaw the TikTok social networking app.

    Due to security concerns, Montana is the first state to adopt legislation outlawing the well-known Chinese-owned app in the US.

    The bill forbids app retailers from letting customers download the software.

    The ban would go into effect in January if Gov. Greg Gianforte signs the legislation.

    Due to concerns that China would have access to user data, the US and other nations have already prohibited TikTok from being used on government-owned devices.
