TikTok has responded to the Government of India’s ban in the country. The company’s India head, Nikhil Gandhi says, “We have been invited to meet with concerned government stakeholders for an opportunity to respond and submit clarifications.” It claims to comply with all privacy requirements and explicitly mentions that it does not share information with the Chinese government. The app was removed from Google Play Store and Apple’s App Store soon after the authorities made the announcement of banning 59 Chinese apps. While the app is delisted from app stores, users who have it installed on their phones are still able to use it.
In a statement issued via TikTok’s official social handles, Gandhi has confirmed that it is currently in the process of complying with the ban order. Company representatives will be meeting with government officials to discuss the issue and submit clarifications. Gandhi says that TikTok places user privacy and security on top priority and will not compromise user data, even if the Chinese government made any such requests.
“TikTok continues to comply with all data privacy and security requirements under Indian law and has not shared any information about our users in India with any foreign government, including the Chinese government. Further, if we are requested to in the future we would not do so. We place the highest importance on user privacy and integrity,” Gandhi says.
