Reports of the government banning a total of 59 Chinese apps, including Tick-Talk and WeChat, have come up in the reports.
These apps were banned in June last year and if reports are to be believed then this ban has been made permanent.
Government not satisfied with the answer
The Gadgets 360 report quoted sources as saying that after the ban, the government had asked all these companies about data collection of users.
The government had asked these apps how much data they collect from users and how the data is used.
The government is not satisfied with the response received from the apps and a permanent ban notice has been sent to them last week.
Rest of other apps too difficult
After the ban on banned apps in June 2020 became permanent, the withdrawal of other apps has been questioned last year.
After the popular PUBG mobile game was banned in India, the company was going to bring its India only version of PUBG Mobile India, but it could not get the green signal from the government.
PUBG Mobile India was scheduled to be launched in November 2020 but its launch seems to be difficult.
Will the jobs of BiteDans employees?
Despite the ban on the app, Tic-Toc’s parent company ByteDance did not close its offices in India.
Hundreds of employees from ByteDance were handling global operations during this period.
The question also arises that after the permanent ban on tick-talk their job will go, or the company will continue to work as before.
Let me tell you, ByteDance has made a big investment in India and it is possible that the company will continue to work.
Will follow local law- Tick-talk
In response to the notice sent by the government, Tic-Talk has said that the safety of users’ data and privacy is their priority.
A spokesperson for Tic-Toc said, “We are understanding the notice and will respond accordingly. Tic-Toc was the first company to follow the instructions given by the government on June 29, 2020. Understanding the government’s concern We will continue to follow local laws and restrictions even further. “
