TikTok denies sharing user data with Chinese govt

Chinese social media app TikTok denied on Tuesday India's allegations it is endangering its national security by sharing Indian users' data with the Chinese government.

"TikTok continues to comply with all data privacy and security requirements under Indian law and have not shared any information of our users in India with any foreign government, including the Chinese Government," head of TikTok India, Nikhil Gandhi, said in a statement.

On Monday, the Indian Ministry of Information Technology announced it blocked 59 Chinese apps including TikTok because they "engaged in activities which are prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, defense of India, the security of the state and public order."
