Canada's Trudeau says ban on TikTok had a'side benefit

Canada's Trudeau says that the ban on TikTok had a'side benefit' of getting his kids off platform U.S. President Biden and Canadian PM Trudeau hold a joint news conference in Ottawa.

OTTAWA Reuters -- Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Friday that he was happy with the ban on the use of Chinese-owned social media app TikTok from government-issued devices, which meant his children could no longer access the platform.

Trudeau said at a joint news conference with U.S. President Joe Biden in Ottawa that their concerns about TikTok relate to security and access to information that the Chinese government could have to government phones. It's just a personal side benefit that my kids can't use TikTok anymore. Trudeau, 51, has three children, two of whom are teenagers. His government said last month that the platform has an unacceptable risk to privacy and security.

I am concerned about their privacy and security, which is why I'm glad that they no longer have access to TikTok, according to Trudeau. It was a big frustration for them. It really applies to us, dad?
