Japan looks to ban TikTok and other Chinese apps

After India and US, Japan looks to ban TikTok and other Chinese apps

by Amelia Scott — 1 week ago in Business Ideas 2 min. read

A group of Japanese lawmakers is seeking to restrict the use of TikTok and other apps developed by Chinese firms, following the footstep of India, which has already blocked dozens of Chinese apps, and the U.S., which is floating the idea of a ban.

The decision was first reported by the Japanese national broadcaster NHK. The lawyers shared the same concern as officials in the U.S. and India that their domestic user data could end up in the hand of Beijing, and planned to submit the proposal to the Japanese government as early as September.

Japan was among TikTok’s first overseas victory instances despite being considered a difficult nut for overseas online companies to crack.

The nascent localization team went out to attract star users and made its own breakthrough using Kinoshita Yukina, a TV character, after holding “seven or six rounds of talks” together with her studio.

Kinoshita’s participation culminated in several different celebrities, who brought with them flocks of lovers into the stage.

From the Western iOS shop, TikTok has always ranked at the top among amusement programs and will be the fifth-most downloaded program across all types in the nation as of the writing, according to research company Program Annie.

In Reaction to scrutiny coming from Japan, a TikTok spokesperson Revealed the Program’s Space from Chinese Management in an Announcement to TechCrunch:

“There is a great deal of misinformation regarding TikTok on the market. TikTok comes with an American CEO, a Chief Information Security Officer with years of business, U.S. military and law enforcement expertise, and also a U.S. staff which works diligently to create a best-in-class safety infrastructure.

Four of the parent firm’s five board seats are commanded by a number of the planet’s best-respected international investors.

TikTok U.S/ consumer information is saved from the U.S. and Singapore, with stringent controls on worker access.”

Other Chinese technology giants have their eyes closed on Japan for ages. Baidu, for example, works Simeji, among the very popular input techniques among Japanese.

While the Indian banning is surely a debacle for Oriental programmers coveting the fastest-growing online marketplace, the nation’s ARPU, or average revenue per user, also remains low in comparison to amounts from the West. Japan, on the other hand, is a far more profitable market.
