TikTok along with 59 other Chinese apps are banned by the Indian government over the rising complaints related to breach of privacy & security concerns. The application is removed from the Google app store and Apple app store. All of the content on the platform is blocked from the Indian networks due to which no one can access them in the country.
The app was consistently in news and was banned for privacy concerns a few months earlier as well but was soon available for download later. While many forums condemned its security levels and raised concern over the instances where Tiktok was held responsible for sharing sensitive data to its servers in China, few let it be that way.
Usually, such an application collects data from users to help improve its quality and make it compatible for all but it also gets dangerous and the data can be hacked for various other malicious activities. Users must always be given an option to opt out of such a data collecting system to protect their own privacy. This practice is highly unethical and holds moral drawbacks as well.
