Restrictions on use of TikTok

In late 2022, Texas Governor Greg Abbott directed state agencies to block TikTok on all state-owned and state-operated devices. The order is intended to minimize information security risks to state agencies related to use of the social media platform. This means that, effective immediately, the downloading or use of TikTok on any UTMB network or UTMB-owned device, including computers and tablets, is prohibited. This applies to faculty, staff, students, contractors and volunteers.

In addition, any departments that are using TikTok accounts for official UTMB business purposes, including education or community outreach, should contact the Office of Strategy and Communications—Digital Communications at to discuss necessary steps to comply with the Governor’s order. (Please include “TikTok” in the subject line.)
