Sanchit said “TikTok will be one of the first dominos to fall in what will be a lengthy process where lots of other apps get banned. It is not unique in the Chinese app sphere.”
He added, "With many Chinese apps, the US government or the Indian government aren’t aware of how that data is being mined."
“Governments are increasingly turning these grey data practices into hot topics, whereby they are able to garner a lot of political capital with their voter base. They’re almost weaponising these issues."
