The CEO of TikTok Kevin Mayer has addressed Indian employees after the Indian government's move to ban Chinese apps. In a blog post titled 'A message to our employees in India', Mayer said despite encountering "an unfortunate challenge in India," the company will stay resolved to further their mission to democratize the internet.

He also assured that TikTok will be working with all the stakeholders to address concerns of data privacy and security requirements under Indian laws.

Mayer also addressed the topic of job security amidst the app ban: "Our employees are our biggest strength, and their well-being is our topmost priority. We have also assured more than 2,000 strong workforce that we will do everything in our power to restore the positive experiences and opportunities that they can be proud of."

TikTok is among the 59 Chinese-origin apps that the Indian government has blacklisted over privacy concerns. The move comes amidst rising border tensions and clash between Chinese and Indian forces at the Galwan Valley, which left 20 Indian soldiers dead.
