The Madras High Court’s Madurai bench earlier this week had lifted the ban on TikTok, which is a popular video creation and sharing app. However, despite the favourable verdict, the app is still not available for download on Google’s Play Store and Apple’s App Store.
On Wednesday, the bench of justices N Kirubakaran and S S Sundar, which heard the matter as per the orders of the Supreme Court, lifted the ban on the condition,that the platform should not be used to host obscene videos. The bench had warned that if any video which violated its condition was found uploaded on the platform, it would be considered a contempt of court.

Earlier, the Madras High Court had ordered the central government to prohibit downloads of TikTok, saying the app was encouraging pornography and putting children at risk. The court also asked the government to answer whether it will enact a statute like the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of the US to prevent the children from becoming cyber/online victims.
