After the ban, TikTok App has now been removed from Google Play and App Store in India, after which now new users will not be able to download the TikTok app. Let us tell you, on Monday night the Ministry of Electronics and IT had banned 59 Chinese apps including TikTok in India. The government has said in its order that these apps pose a threat to India’s sovereignty and unity, which is why this decision has been taken. According to the government, all these apps were violating the privacy of the users and sending their personal data out of India. In this regard, the government has issued a notice to Apple and Google and ordered them to remove 59 Chinese apps. Besides, internet service providers and telecommunication companies have also been asked to implement the ban. The first app in this list is Tiktok, which has been removed from both Google Play and App Store.

Now you cannot download TikTok even if you want. However, for those who already had this app installed on their devices, it is still working on their phones. But if you uninstall it for some reason, you will not be able to download TikTok again.

The government has said in its statement that the Ministry has implemented these apps under Section 69A of the IT Act under the provisions of the Information Technology Act and the Ministry of Information Technology (Procedures and Safeguards for Blocking of Access of Information by Public) Rules 2009 and Considering the nature of the threats, 59 apps have been banned. According to available information, these apps were engaged in certain activities which could pose a threat to the sovereignty and integrity of India, defense of India, security of the State and public order.

However, apart from TikTok, other banned apps are still available for download. Shareit is still available for download. Similarly, CamScanner, Shein, and Clash of Kings are also currently available for download. At the same time, like TikTok, there are some apps which have been removed, like Helo App. Likee can still be downloaded. If you are a regular user of banned apps and you are looking for other alternatives, then Tech News by Careers Ready has found some alternatives for you which you can use instead.

The official statement behind the ban focuses on security and defense, although it is clear that one of the reasons for the banned 59 Chinese apps is the increasing tension between India and China. Let us tell you, this is not the first time that TikTok has been banned, this app has been banned before also, but every time it has made a comeback. However, the current circumstances are different. This time the app is going to take a little more time to make a comeback.
