How To Use TikTok In India After The Ban?

TikTok has emerged as the most popular video-creating social media platform. Since a Chinese company owns it, there are concerns that the information or data shared on the platform might lead its way to the Chinese government. Thus, most of the countries have decided to put an entire ban on its use. 

Everyone is familiar with the fact that the Government of India has announced to entirely ban the usage of all the Chinese apps back in 2020, including TikTok. According to this ban, all the Chinese apps have been removed from the PlayStore to avoid their installation. This ban was put in place to ensure the national security and privacy of the nation, along with the online data security of the citizens.

What is TikTok?

TikTok is the short video-creating platform that is the best place for users who want to showcase their talent. It allows users to create short videos with background trending songs, effects, filters, and creative editing tools. 

TikTok has the most exciting features, including creating and uploading videos, searching and following the people you know, following your friends, following famous TikTok celebrities, watching trendy videos of the people who posted videos, and more. 

Why was TikTok banned in India?

TikTok was banned in several other countries, including India. The reason that most of the countries provided is that a Chinese company owns TikTok, and due to this, there was a big fear of online data leaks by the country’s citizens and the security and privacy concerns of the nation. The officials confirmed that the data or information provided by the users to the platform could be misused by falling into the wrong hands.

How to use TikTok after it was banned in India?

Although TikTok is currently banned in India, some users still like the platform and are looking to use it again. As TikTok is unavailable on the Google Play Store or the App Store, how can a person use it after it’s unavailable everywhere?

Fortunately, users who have made their profile on TikTok can access the platform even after it’s banned in India. Those new to the forum can’t get TikTok on the Play Store or the App Store. Instead, they will need a VPN to access TikTok on their smartphones. 

To use a VPN to access TikTok,

  • Carry out a factory reset process of your smartphone.
  • After the reset process, the blocked IP address of the hardware will be removed from your device.
  • Now, you can use TikTok in India even after it’s banned.
