Indian court lifts ban on TikTok

The company lost 600 thousand dollars a day.

Indian Supreme Court Madras decided to cancel the ban on video service TikTok and allowed the application to return to the AppStore and Google Play stores .. This was reported by Reuters.

As stated by ByteDance, which developed the application, the ban on TikTok led to “financial losses” of up to 600 thousand dollars a day and put at risk more than 250 jobs.

The court ordered TikTok to update the privacy policy. The video service should also deal with any content complaint within 36 hours, and if TikTok fails to fulfill these conditions, they can file a case for contempt of court.

According to analyst firm Sensor Tower, TikTok in India have already downloaded almost 300 million users, and there are more than one billion downloads in the world.

On April 16, Google, at the request of the court, deleted the TikTok application from the Indian Play Store, and on April 17, Apple also deleted the application from the Indian App Store. Indian authorities have found that TikTok distributes pornography and other illegal content. Shortly after the ban, the company removed more than 6 million videos from TikTok that violate the terms of use and community guidelines. Despite the ban, users who have already downloaded the application to their phone could use it.
