Meanwhile, in a big move, India on Monday banned 59 Chinese Apps including TikTok, stating that it received many complaints from various sources including several reports about the misuse of these apps for stealing and surreptitiously transmitting users' data in an unauthorized manner to servers that have locations outside India.
