The Madras High Court has lifted its ban on the Chinese short-video app TikTok albeit with the condition that the content hosted using it should be free from obscene videos of children and women. On April 3, the Madras HC has directed the Centre to ban the Chinese app. And, the reason for the ban it says is "pornographic and inappropriate content" that is available in such apps. Soon after, tech giants Google and Apple had removed TikTok from their app stores in India. After the ban was lifted, TikTok said it remains committed to "continuously enhancing" safety features. The video app has almost 120 million users in India.
