TikTok is back with a bang! TikTok has secured the number one position as Top Free iOS app on Apple App Store. The app is also leading as Top Free App in the Social category on the Google Play Store.

Last month, Google and Apple removed the TikTok app from Google Play Store and Apple App Store after the Madras High Court directed the centre to impose a ban on TikTok over concerns of "pornographic and inappropriate content" being made available through it, thus preventing further app downloads.

The ban was later lifted with the condition that the platform should not be used to host obscene videos. TikTok has over 200 million users in India.

Recently, TikTok launched a new #ReturnOfTikTok brand campaign to let users participate in some in-app challenge.
