India bans TikTok, WeChat and dozens more Chinese apps



June 30. The government of India on Monday announced the ban of 59 Chinese apps in the country. A day later one of the most popular short video applications TikTok has been taken down from Apple App store and also Google Play store. Users who still have the TikTok app on their mobile phone can still be able to use it, however, the app can’t be downloaded anymore. Most other Chinese apps banned in India are still available for download.

TikTok had nearly 119 million active users in India and was among the top 10 apps on Google Play store and Apple App store.

In a statement, it said the apps were “prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, security of state and public order”.

India’s Ministry of Information Technology said it was banning the 59 Chinese apps after receiving “many complaints from various sources” about apps that were “stealing and surreptitiously transmitting users’ data in an unauthorised manner”.

In total, 59 apps were banned – among them popular messaging app WeChat. It follows escalating tensions along the disputed border between the two powers.
