In early December 2022, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott banned the social media platform TikTok on state phones and computers, saying the platform created cybersecurity risks.

Since TikTok is owned by ByteDance Ltd., a Chinese company, Abbott said that the platform posed a threat for the company to gain access to state information. Since his ban, universities in Texas and across the country have started to block access to the social media platform on campus Wi-Fi networks.
