Less than a week after India banned TikTok and 58 other Chinese apps in India in the wake of the Sino-Indian border skirmish, there are reports that the Chinese company is already making efforts at a rapprochement. Tik Tok’s chief executive has told New Delhi that the company would never turn over user data even if Beijing asked for it. 

A report in the Wall Street Journal claimed that Kevin Mayer, who leads the video-sharing social network, had written a letter to the federal government in India on June 28 where he had categorically stated that the Chinese administration had never sought user data and even if they did, the company would not be turning it over. 

Why is TikTok seeking a rapproachment?
