After India, Pakistan has also given a big blow to China. Yes, the Telecom Authority of Pakistan has blocked the Chinese app TikTok on Friday. As per Pakistan’s Geo News report, the authority says that the company has completely failed to follow the instructions to develop an effective mechanism for active moderation of illegal online content. Significantly, in June, India had banned many Chinese apps, including Tiktok, citing security reasons.

According to reports, the Telecom Authority of Pakistan had repeatedly asked the company to develop an effective mechanism for active moderation of illegal online content. But the company authority did not comply with this. As a result the authority decided to block tick-talk in Pakistan. Let us know that Tiktok was warned by Pakistan in July itself.
