KATHMANDU: TikTok India has said it will comply with all data privacy and security requirements under Indian laws and asserted that the information about the app users in India has not been compromised.

Head of TikTok India, Nikhil Gandhi, in a statement, said the company had taken the process of complying with the interim order. The statement said, “We have been invited to meet with concerned government stakeholders for an opportunity to respond and submit clarifications.”
The statement further asserted, “TikTok continues to comply with all data privacy and security requirements under Indian law and has not shared any information of our users in India with any foreign government, including the Chinese Government.
