Finally, Tiktok has banned in the entire country. Not only Tiktok but 59 Chinese apps in total have been banned by the government.
China’s state-run media The Global Times reported that ByteDance could lose up to USD 6 billion as a result of the Indian government’s decision to ban TikTok, Helo, and several other Chinese apps due to security issues.
Chinese Apps dominates the Indian app market in all the genres from social, short video, gaming, utility, and more. These apps are always having poor privacy and security policy which can lead to data theft and spying. In my opinion, this is a wonderful decision taken by the Government. It is an easy decision & a very small step, albeit an extremely important one. Because. Today, if we want to tackle china and take a stand against them.
