Didn't share data with China: TikTok India unit

A day after being banned by India, Chinese App TikTok's India unit today said it has not shared any information on Indian users with any foreign government, including the Chinese government.

The popular video service said it "continued to comply with data privacy and security requirements under the Indian law."

"We have not shared any information of users in India with any foreign government, including the Chinese government."

"We have been invited to meet with concerned government stakeholders for an opportunity to respond and submit clarifications," TikTok India head Nikhil Gandhi said in a statement.

Last night, India banned 59 Chinese-owned apps, including TikTok, ShareIt, UC Browser, and WeChat, saying these apps were "prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, security of state and public order."

The action came in the backdrop of the ongoing military stand-off between India and China along the Line of Actual Control in Ladakh.

The violent clash between the troops of the two countries left 20 Indian soldiers dead and 76 injured.
