Popular Chinese app, TikTok which was blocked recently in India reportedly told the Indian government that the company is ready to set up data centers in India in order to store user information locally. By doing so, the company will be complying with Indian rules and not cause any threat to national security. The Chinese app also emphasized that they adhered to local laws and regulations prior to the ban as well.

TikTok and Helo were among 59 Chinese apps that were blocked by the Indian government on June 29. The government cited multiple charges which includes “engaging in activities which are prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, security of state and public order”.

Indian IT ministry had sent a detailed questionnaire earlier seeking details from blocked Chinese apps such as data management practices, unauthorized data access, security features, data processing and collection. 

A spokesperson for TikTok said, “We have submitted our response to the government and are working with them to provide clarifications to allay the concerns they have. Throughout the duration of our operations, we have demonstrated unequivocal commitment to complying with local laws, including data privacy and security requirements.”

Reportedly, Indian government has formed a high- level committee in order to discuss the future course of action and respond to the company’s request. 

Times of India cited sources who revealed that TikTok has been a law- abiding entity in India so far. “It has previously claimed that it used to save the data of Indians mainly on third-party servers in the US and Singapore. Its assurance on having local servers is seen as an attempt to build trust and confidence around its data-handling practices, one of the sources said,” TOI reported.
