An official statement released by India’s Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, the Chinese apps were “stealing and surreptitiously transmitting users’ data in an unauthorized manner to servers which have locations outside India. Further, the compilation of these data, its mining and profiling by elements hostile to national security and defense of India, which ultimately impinges upon the sovereignty and integrity of India, is a matter of very deep and immediate concern which requires emergency measures.”

Henceforth, it is a great decision to ban TikTok, and Indian users have an abundance of social media apps, which have the caliber to replace it.
