Governor Abbott’s orders action against TikTok

To all employees of the UNT System:

Per Governor Abbott’s order, all faculty and staff across all UNT member institutions and UNT System Administration, must immediately cease using or downloading TikTok on any institutionally issued and/or managed devices including cell phones, laptops, tablets, and desktop computers.

Additionally, all verified UNT member institutions’ social media managers must freeze activity on all TikTok accounts immediately and until further notice. (There is no need to delete or inactivate accounts at this time.)

This is a mandatory request that will be strictly enforced by IT across all institutions.

Thank you,
