JAKARTA: Indonesia has overturned its ban on Chinese video app Tik Tok after it agreed to censor “negative content”, the Communications Ministry said on July 11.

Tik Tok, the most downloaded app globally on Apple Inc's app store in January-March, is popular among young people for its homemade music videos. But access was blocked on July 3 by authorities in Indonesia, home to the world's biggest Muslim population, for featuring content deemed pornographic and blasphemous.
