BEIJING: Online video-sharing mobile application TikTok has issued a statement on a final notice issued by the Pakistan Telecommunications Authority (PTA).
TikTok has issued a statement on the PTA notice stating that “compliance with the law is the top priority of the company to provide a positive and safe environment to the customers”.
According to TikTok, ‘Numerous technology services and innovative strategies have been implemented to timely identify and review any inappropriate content, while hundreds of videos have been removed and IDs blocked for violating social values.
The company said in a statement that “TikTok users have been provided with controls, analytics and privacy options so that they can use the platform in many ways.”
A Tik Tok spokesperson said that the management would soon start practical talks with the concerned authorities to inform them about the company’s policies and take action on the complaints of the Pakistani authorities.
It may be recalled that two days ago, the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority had sent a final notice to Tik Tok, shutting down the services of an application called Bagu in Pakistan for advertising inappropriate content.
