Short-video sharing app TikTok ranked the third most downloaded app in Pakistan in 2021 even though it remained blocked in the country for almost five months due to “immoral and indecent” content.
Data compiled by Mobile Insights Strategist Craig Chapple of SensorTower showed that the Chinese owned app was downloaded 26.5 million times in the country in the previous year.
These estimates are for the App Store and Google Play only and do not include data from other third-party Android stores.
