Montana Becomes 1st State To Officially Ban TikTok
May 18, 2023 10:19AM EDT
Montana has become the first state in the U.S. to ban TikTok.
Gov. Greg Gianforte signed off on the bill on Wednesday.
The ban will not punish TikTok users, but rather app stores and TikTok itself – with fines up $10,000 per day for allowing the app to be downloaded or accessed.
The ban is the first of its kind in the U.S. and is expected to face legal challenges from both TikTok and the ACLU.
