Although TikTok has been removed from the App/Play Store, there are plenty of similar apps that are still available. Most of the content creators of TikTok have moved to these apps and are starting over. For instance, some of the popular TikTok alternatives that are being considered are Mitron, Roposo, Chingaari, ManchTV, and Lasso.

    • Direct brand collaboration

One of the best things about TikTok was that it would automatically take care of brand promotion and ad placement. Since the platform is no longer accessible, influencers are getting in touch with brands directly or through third-party platforms to earn.

    • Expanding their social circle

The TikTok ban in India has been a learning lesson for a lot of influencers and they realized how important it is to have a cross-platform presence. That’s why they are expanding to other platforms like YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, etc. to expand their overall presence on social media.

    • Trying to lift the ban

Last, but most importantly, most of the active influencers from TikTok are doing their best to lift the ban. There have been several requests and petitions to unban TikTok in India. Even the tech giant Reliance Communications is considering to buy the Indian vertical of the app to resume its services.

Part 2: How TikTok Helped Millions of Users in India?

TikTok has been around for years and grew into a huge community of over a billion users – a large chunk of them were from India. More than 200 million people used to access TikTok in India and get benefited by it in the following ways:

    • Earning from TikTok Monetization

This is one of the major things that influencers would use TikTok for. A while back, the application came up with a “pro” profile option, letting us make the most of its monetization features. TikTok would automatically place ads in your videos so that you can earn from your content. This made a lot of TikTok content creators earn a livelihood from the app.

    • Expanding their social influence

If you will visit TikTok, you will realize that it is a common space for makeup artists, chefs, dancers, singers, painters, and tons of talented folks. The platform was actively used by people to share their skills with others and get more traction. Not only did TikTok give them a much-needed exposure, but it also helped a lot of people make a living from their passion.

    • Using the app for the fun of it!

Most importantly, you will find millions of users on TikTok sharing all kinds of funny and entertaining posts. People would take up challenges and recreate different things in a mini-video to entertain others. Making someone else’s day was ideally one of the major reasons for using TikTok by Indian users.

Part 3: How to Overcome the TikTok Ban in India?

While TikTok is banned in India, there are a few ways to still access the platform on your device. Please note that only the app has been banned, but there are no legal laws that can stop Indian citizens from using TikTok. Therefore, you can try these methods to access TikTok without any complications.

Tip 1: Install TikTok from third-party sources

Ideally, there was no need to uninstall TikTok from your phone after the app. Though, if you have deleted the app, then you can’t get it from the Play Store or the App Store (as it has been removed by Google and Apple in India). To get TikTok, you can visit any third-party app store like APKpure, UptoDown, APKfollow, and so on.

For this, you just need to make a minor tweak on your device. Firstly, go to its Settings > Security and turn on the option to install apps from “Unknown Source” on your phone. After that, you can visit any third-party app store on your browser and download TikTok from it.

Tip 2: Use a VPN to change your phone’s IP Address

If you have TikTok installed on your phone and you are in India, then you won’t be able to access its services as of now. To move past the ban, you can simply use a reliable VPN app on your device. A VPN will change the IP address on your phone and will let you use TikTok without any problem.

You can install a VPN app on your Android or iOS device from the App/Play Store to access their services. There are a couple of VPN apps that you can use, such as Nord, Express, Cyber Ghost, Super, Turbo, Hola, SurfShark, IPVanish, and so on.
