Facts About TikTok Leave From Hong Kong
According to the latest news, on late Monday a spokesman tells that TikTok will leave the Hong Kong market within a few days. The purpose of leaving the Hong Kong market is because of the following reasons:
- The Hong Kong region is a small, loss-making market for the company and it had attracted only 150,000 users last August.
- TikTok was violating guidelines by targeting videos related to pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong last year.
- Besides, it was showing shocking or sensational content like the mistreatment of Muslims in China’s Xinjiang region and clashes at the India-China border.
- China’s parliament passed sweeping new national security legislation. It is for the semi-autonomous city. Hence, TikTok has been facing persistent allegations due to its decisions on content align with Beijing’s priorities.
Now, TikTok is run by the former executive of Walt Disney named Kevin Mayer. He confirms that the app’s user data was not stored in China.
It was one of the largest and preeminent applications. TikTok along with 59 Chinese apps has ban form India. The reason is the deadly border clash in the Himalayas in between India vs China.
Moreover, US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo said that they are certainly looking at a ban on Chinese social media apps including TikTok.
You will be in shock after knowing that Chinese people are not able to use TikTok. They say this is a part of a strategy to appeal to a more global audience. Hence, it is a humble suggestion to our Indian users that don’t use these Chinese apps. As, many Chinese apps like TikTok, Zoom leaks the user data. So, to make your privacy avoid using these apps.
