New Zealand politicians have been warned against using the social media platform TikTok.

The warning comes due to concerns their data could be accessed by the Chinese Government.

The warning for politicians came from Speaker Trevor Mallard via an email from the Parliamentary Service to all political parties last week.

The email said that if MPs continue to use the app, they should do the following;
1.They should check they are comfortable with the permissions settings.
2. Remove its ability to access their location.
3. Not link it to other social media accounts.
