Recently, The Indian Ministry Of Home Affairs banned 59 Chinese apps including the public’s favorite TikTok and Helo app. The apps which were banned, are suspected to send user data to databases outside India, threatening Indian cyberspace and user’s privacy.
Thousands of users enjoyed using TikTok and Helo app. Some people even had a career out of it. And the sudden ban on the application came as a shock to everyone. However, after a huge ban on these applications on June 29, people are keenly searching for an equally better alternative video creating app.
The Indian Government earlier had questioned the Chinese government regarding the details of the Chinese apps, such as their data management practices, unauthorized data access, security features, data processing, and collection.
One of the spokespeople for TikTok stated, that they’ve submitted the response, and are working in clarifying the concerns and answers to the questions they’ve previously asked, and reportedly demonstrated the commitment to the local laws, data privacy and security issues to the government.
According to the sources, the Indian government is looking forward to discussing the future of the app along with the group of high-level committee members and reply to the company’s request.
As stated by TOI, TikTok has been abiding the Indian laws and it previously claimed that the user’s data are stored in the US and Singapore’s third-party servers. Since these local servers gain people’s trust and confidence for its data-handling practices.
