Why Indian government banned TikTok?

Due to the controversies happening during the COVID-19 lockdown, the Indian government banned 59 Chinese apps including TikTok. The controversies state that these Chinese apps allow stealing and transmitting data to unauthorized persons. These data privacy problems lead to making an aggressive statement by the national security and defense of India as it is a threat to India’s sovereignty and integrity. This is not the first time that India bans Chinese apps; Alibaba’s UC browser came under inspection in 2017 and found to be harmful. So India banned 42 similar Chinese apps.

The TikTok was initially banned for promoting pornography and after that, based on the privacy concerns, the app returned back. Thus you can’t be able to download TikTok from both the Google play store and the Apple app store. This step was taken by the Indian government to protect the citizens from cybercrime as there are crores of mobile and online users.

How TikTok was harmful for Indian people and social life?

More than 100 million people were dependent on the popular app “TikTok” for entertainment and for exploring their talent. Banning tiktok gave a heart-attack to the Indians. This was the app that created a platform for many people to expose what they know in the form of short videos and shine like a celebrity. This step drastically affected millions of people’s social life.

On the other hand, the Indian government’s vital step served as the vocal for local motive of Narendra Modi. Most of them were happy and congratulated Modi for promoting the local apps for the betterment of India.
