Tik Tok app - ban ordered by madras high court

I really hope all parents in this circle delete it from their childrens phone and google apple microsoft also delete from app stores. Below is why the app was banned and I urge Govt to ban Sharechat, Bigo Live, Musicly and all such nonsense apps. We need our next generation to be focused and not crazy social media manicas who need rehabilitation by the time they turn 18.

Pornography and mental health: contains “degrading culture and encouraging pornography besides causing pedophiles and explicit disturbing content, social stigma and mental health issue between teens”…”It is evident from media reports that pornography and inappropriate contents are made available on this kind of cyber applications.

Pranks: “majority of teens are playing pranks, gaffing around with duet videos sharing with split screen to the strangers”…”People are “making cruel humour against innocent third parties. Even television channels are also telecasting Tik Tok videos”…”Nobody can be pranked or shocked or being made as a subject of mockery by any third party and it would amount to the violation of the privacy.”

Potential exposure of Children to sexual predators: Children who use the application “are vulnerable and may expose them to sexual predators”…Children are exposed to strangers and there is possibility of the photographs and other private details of strangers being landed in the hands of predators or third parties”…”There is a possibility of children contacting strangers directly and luring them.”

Addiction: “By becoming addicted to Tik Tok App, and similar Apps, or cyber games, the future of the youngsters and mind set of the children are spoiled.” more
