I recommend changing the thread title to reflect that it's the Government of India and not the Government of Canada that is banning them.

Nobody should ever install Chinese software unless they're a Chinese citizen being forced to do so by the government. I'm honestly surprised any government or company permits them.

Many Chinese apps are pretty much spyware for the Chinese government or have hidden backdoors. If a foreign country wants to ban them, all the power to them.

Do a search for "tiktok reverse engineered". Don't know if it's for real, but I'm generally not interested in those types of apps, anyhow.

Here's a spoiler: “For what it’s worth I’ve reversed the Instagram, Facebook, Reddit, and Twitter apps,” he concluded. “They don’t collect anywhere near the same amount of data that TikTok does, and they sure as hell aren’t outright trying to hide exactly what’s being sent like TikTok is. It’s like comparing a cup of water to the ocean – they just don’t compare.”
