Islamabad – The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) last week imposed a ban on TikTok after the Chinese-owned social media application failed to filter out “immoral and indecent” content.
The decision was taken in response to a large number of complaints from the different segments of society, the authority said in a statement on Friday.
While the authority says that the ban will remain in place until the application introduces a satisfactory mechanism to moderate objectionable content, the app in still accessible in Pakistan through virtual private networks (VPN).
One of popular VPN applications used to unblock the Tiktok in the country on the Android platform is Fast & Free VPN Hotspot Shield.
The application has a simple yet elegant interface that allows the users to access any banned website or application on their mobile device and view the content they desire in a quick and hassle-free manner.
