ALIVE – Application of a short video of TikTok is struggling with the law in India due to a ban presented by the Supreme Court of Madras, Chennai, India.
The app is no longer available on the App Store or Play Store, but authorities who are aware of the developments in the company have found that 120 million users still continue to use the app.
Reported through page Economic TimesOn Saturday, April 20, 2019, the company expects this case to produce something very good, given the popularity it soared. Company officials said the app was widely used by people there and did it in less than a year.
"TikTok is everywhere, like in Connaught Place, New Delhi in Surat, where breeders are known to have 500,000 followers," he said.
They continued, the company had observed laws and regulations. But the app has become a place for people to unburden their creativity every day. 120 million monthly active users demonstrated their ideas and imagination.
According to the data, between April 8, 2019 the app still ranked first in downloads in the Google Play Store in the social apps category and ranked first in iOS in the photo and video category. While reports from Tower Sensor estimate that TikTok gained 188 million users in the first quarter of 2019.
The ban on the use of applications at the time was presented by MeitY (Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology). Then the Madras Supreme Court on Tuesday continued to prohibit the application and appointed an independent counselor for this case.
A cyber security expert considers that court orders are not followed by MeitY. This is evidenced because there are still children who have access to the application, "This has not been a comprehensive ban given the base of application users who still have access," he said.
