TikTok Apk operations to be stopped in Hong Kong

On Monday, TikTok disclosed that it’s famous video snippet-sharing service will be stopped from running in Hong Kong following “recent events”.

TikTok ‘s move, owned by China-based ByteDance, came as Facebook , Google and Twitter placed a hold on requests from Hong Kong ‘s government or police force for user information, following China’s implementation of a sweeping new law on health.

“We’ve decided to discontinue operations of the TikTok app in Hong Kong in light of recent developments,” TikTok told AFP.

TikTok has repeatedly denied the sharing of any user data with chinese government, and was convinced that it did not intend to begin accepting such queries.

The company expects wind-down app operations in Hong Kong to take several days.

With users posting 15 to 60-second video clips on everything from hair dye tips to dance routines and gags about everyday life, it has become a global phenomenon.

Last week, it joined the EU’s disinformation code of conduct as tech giants seek to convince Europe to retreat from setting laws against detrimental online content.
