Almost the whole US military has gone to war against TikTok

WASHINGTON — When the U.S. Army, Navy and Marines recently went into battle against Chinese video sharing app TikTok, it was only a matter of time before reinforcements were sent in.

Now according to the Wall Street Journal, the Air Force and Coast Guard have also said they are no longer allowing TikTok on government-issued devices.

According to Engadget, it's unclear if the ban will also extend to the Super Space Force.

Apparently there are no restrictions of the app on personal devices, but officials have encouraged personnel and their kids to ditch it.

The recent bans come amid U.S. concerns that the Chinese government could pressure TikTok to hand over sensitive data.

Spokeswoman Major Malinda Singleton told the Wall Street Journal, some of the issues are "not unique" to any one social media platform.

Bad guys could possibly recruit people through social networks, and there's a chance that personnel could inadvertently reveal military secrets or expose themselves to attack.

But if anything, the TikTok ban has to make you think.

U.S. soldiers are damn young.
