COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Texas A&M issued the following statement today regarding TikTok:

“Based on both state and federal orders and concerns, Texas A&M has blocked access to TikTok from state-owned devices.

"Additionally, as instructed by the Governor we are in the process of putting in place network-based filtering that will block both wireless and wired access to downloading or accessing the app from our campus network, which means students, faculty, staff and visitors will not be able to use the app when connected to an A&M network.”
