Between 750 million to 1 billion subscribers have been snatched from Chinese apps by this decision. Rumor is that second list will soon be out containing Zoom app too. Very bold step, considering most of Chinese phones comes preloaded with these apps.

But zoom is an American app owned by a Chinese American.

Banning TikTok and the other apps also hurts many Indians employed by them, so do spare a thought for them.
Two words. FSCK THEM! All the Mullah Mullah doing their Mullah Mullah stuff on Tick Tok need to be taught a lesson.

India will do well to block access to TikTok server as well. Just filter it by domain, IP range and god damn SSL CAs as well. We don't need to trust ANY connection signed by a Chinese CA.

you have seen what happened to PUBG soldiers in Galwan.
I still can't get over the fact that they consider themselves a legit army and have to outsource their fighting to MMA sportsmen.

Oh yeah, their MMA plan will backfire too because they are from a sports club meant for MMA as sports/exhibition matches.

What is the substitute for these apps which are banned???
TikTok => There are many white labelled TikTok like apps in the market. Just choose one.. Mitron comes to mind. Or better stick to youtube and twitter. No need for so many bullshit social media.

Zoom => Whats Up, AWS Chime for business

Cam Scanner => Note bloc, Zoho scanner

BTW, I have used Zoho business webapps extensively. They give all the foreign competitors a run for their money. Yes, they all are made in india. Read about Zoho story sometimes and how they are giving Salesforce a run for their money.
