After TikTok was exposed for spying on what we type, it got banned by India together with 58 other Chinese apps, for cybersecurity reasons.
Here is everything you need to know about this new ban, including the full list of banned apps!
India Bans 59 Chinese Apps, Including TikTok and WeChat!
Just two days ago, we showed how TikTok was caught spying on what we type in other apps, not once but TWICE.
The very next day, TikTok joined WeChat as part of a ban by India on 59 Chinese apps identified as malicious or posing data and privacy risks to their users.
The Ministry of Information Technology has received many complaints from various sources including several reports about misuse of some mobile apps available on Android and iOS platforms for stealing and surreptitiously transmitting users’ data in an unauthorized manner to servers which have locations outside India.
The compilation of these data, its mining and profiling by elements hostile to national security and defence 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.
Based on input from the Indian Cyber Crime Coordination Centre, the Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-IN) and representatives from both inside and outside the Indian Parliament, the Indian government announced the ban of 59 Chinese apps.
No doubt, the recent high altitude fatal brawl between Chinese and Indian troops in the Himalayas played some part in this decision.

India Bans 59 Chinese Apps : The Implications
This ban by India means that Apple App Store, Google Play Store and even the HUAWEI AppGallery must stop providing access to those 59 banned apps in India.
If you already have them installed, then they will still work. You just cannot install them from official app stores within India.
If you still wish to download and install them, Android users can download and install their APK (Android Application Package) installation files from their official websites and APK repositories.
Apple iOS users, as usual, are out of luck, unless they are using jailbroken devices.
