Many of us are still lamenting on the Tiktok ban, as it was one of the most user-friendly video sharing platforms. But many of us do not know the exact reason for the short-form video-sharing app ban. Tiktok, along with 58 other apps has been banned as they were charged for stealing data and secretly transmitting them illegally. Moreover, Tiktok helps the users to share small video clips that are more likely to go viral. This may make the Tiktok subscriber vulnerable to several security threats. The US senators have also criticized this Beijing based app on concerns like child safety, data privacy, and censorship. Many countries banned the app as they found some pornographic and profane content.
