Earlier, Indian security agencies had prepared a list of Chinese apps and appealed to the central government to ban them or people should be asked to immediately remove them from their mobiles.

The court also noted that children and minors using the app were at risk of being targeted by sexual predators. The court further asked broadcast media not to telecast any of those videos from the app. The spokesperson for TikTok stated that they were abiding by local laws and were awaiting the copy of the court order before they take action. On 17 April, both Google and Apple removed TikTok from Google Play and the App Store. As the court refused to reconsider the ban, the company stated that they had removed over 6 million videos that violated their content policy and guidelines.[170]

On 25 April 2019, the ban was lifted after a court in Tamil Nadu reversed its order of prohibiting downloads of the app from the App Store and Google Play, following a plea from TikTok developer Bytedance Technology. India’s TikTok ban might have cost the app 15 million new users.[173] Yet as of 2020, the number of Indian users have increased and now Indian head of TikTok Nikhil Gandhi expects that TikTok will at least grow by 50% by the end of 2020

TikTok has allowed bands to get notoriety in places all around the globe. The band Fitz and The Tantrums has developed a large following in South Korea despite never having toured in Asia. “Any Song” by R&B and rap artist Zico became number 1 on the Korean music charts due to the popularity of the #anysongchallenge, where users dance the choreography of “Any Song”.

The platform has received some criticism for its lack of royalties towards artists whose music is used on their platform.. There is controversy over whether or not this type of promotion is beneficial in the long run for artists since it seems to play as a “one-hit wonder”.

In June 2020, TikTok users and K-pop fans “claimed to have registered potentially hundreds of thousands of tickets” for President Trump’s campaign rally in Tulsa through communication on TikTok., contributing to “rows of empty seats”. at the event.

TikTok has banned holocaust denial, but other conspiracy theories have become popular on the platform, such as Pizzagate and QAnon (two conspiracy theories popular among the US alt-right) whose hashtags reached almost 80 million views and 50 million views respectively by June 2020.. The platform has also been used to spread misinformation about the COVID-19 pandemic, such as clips from the Plandemic video. TikTok removed some of these videos, and has generally added links to accurate COVID-19 information on videos with tags related to the pandemic.
