TikTok vanishes from Google, Apple store after India ban

Jun 30, 2020 13:02 IST

TikTok has been taken down from Google Play Store and Apple App Store following the govt’s move to ban 59 Chinese apps for allegedly engaging in activities "prejudicial to the sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, security of state and public order.” However, several other apps including UC Browser, WeChat, Bigo Live, and Shein were still available to download on both stores. Meanwhile TikTok has responded and said that they are complying with the ban and have been invited to ‘respond and submit clarifications’ to the concerned government stakeholders. The Bytedance-owned company further said in a statement that it meets “all data privacy and security requirements under Indian law” and that it has not shared any user information with the Chinese government.
