This is one of the key requirements of the IT regulations for 'critical' social media intermediates, which have more than 5 million users in the country. However, despite being the nodal and grievance officer, ByteDance-owned TikTok faced a nationwide ban last year for endangering the country's "sovereignty and integrity" amid border tensions with China.
