The governor of the U.S. state of Montana signed a law banning TikTok from operating in the state, making it the first U.S. state to ban the popular short video app.
The controversial law marks the furthest step the state government has taken to restrict the TikTok app due to perceived security concerns, and it comes as some lawmakers have called for a ban on TikTok but is expected to be challenged in court.
The bill will go into effect in January, banning the app from running in the state. The law also establishes potential $10,000 fines for violators.
Last month, Montana lawmakers voted 54-43 to pass the bill.
