3 Alternative app for TikTok and other Chinese apps – best to use

India Ministry of Information Technology has banned 59 apps stating privacy concerns and the Government of India has disallowed the usage of such apps in the country.

here is the complete list of the apps and these apps are banned on both iOS and Android platform

alternative tiktok apps

and guys if you’re using any of these apps then I request you to immediately delete these apps right now

now I’m going to show you the best alternative apps of some of the commonly used apps from the list.  I will not be covering each and every app. some of the apps in the band list are not useful to us so

cam scanner

cam scanner so the alternate app for the cam scanner which I recommend is the Adobe scan this app is really easy to use and you have similar features as a cam scanner and you need to click a picture in the app, you can scan a whiteboard form document and also a business card once you save the PDF file it will be uploaded to the cloud and will be synced with your account and from here you can share the PDF file as the link or attachment in the email overall Adobe scan is an easy app to use and my first choice now after the ban of cam scanner

youcam makeup

youcam makeup app and for this app I recommend the alternate b612 beauty & camera app apart from that there are several Beauty apps available on Play Store which you can try in this app you get the real-time Beauty effect preview which includes face shape skin tone etc

the filters are really easy to use and from this app, you can take photos as well as shoot videos with the beauty filters there are also AR stickers in the app such as animal faces makeup effects and so on which are very well optimized overall if you’re looking for a beauty makeup app then b612 is one of the best apps to use right now


TikTok is also got banded and there are a lot of apps which are available similar to TikTok with better privacy, there are a couple of apps which you can download and use

bolo indya

first is the bolo indya which is an Indian alternate TikTok. like TikTok, you can create short videos in the app and you can download and share videos as per your interest in across different categories such as GK health English learning, etc

bolo indya


this app also offers similar short videos and you get swipe up to quickly see the videos from different users and functional device both these apps are very close to TikTok but are made in India.


there is also a new app these days which is chingari which offers similar TikTok like experience so if you’re looking for the best alternative then do check out.

UC browser

UC browser is among one of the apps got banned and you have a lot of options when it comes to the browsers on your phone the first alternate is Google Chrome which I’m sure most of you know it already and I personally use Google Chrome on all my devices and it’s very fast and really easy to use as well in other browsers you can use Microsoft edge Mozilla Firefox and opera.

all these browsers are available cross-platform which makes them useful as will have your bookmarks on all your devices and most importantly you will not get malicious ads and push notifications like UC browser. which I don’t know why came pre-installed in some of the budget segment phones and, to be honest, I’m really happy that this app is banned in India

parallel space

this is the app which allows you to use two versions of the same app on your phone, for example, using two or more Facebook, WhatsApp account on your phone there are quite a few alternatives available to this on Play Store but the one I have used myself and I find it good is the dual apps.

dual apps offer you a parallel space where you can install one more copy of the apps like WhatsApp, Instagram, telegram and other social media apps on your phone apart from that you can add any other apps from here this way you can use two WhatsApp numbers on your same phone and functionality-wise this app works really good say if you’re looking for an alternate app to parallel space then this is the app you should check out.


 share it used to be the most commonly used up when it comes to sharing files and media but now as it’s banned the best alternate I recommend you is the Google files go.  files go is really good and easy to use for both sharing and managing your files and data on your phone apart from that this app also offers share feature where you can send and receive files easily which is very similar to the share it the connection process is fairly simple and the app is really easy to use so for sharing files I think files go is the best app to download on your phone now.

there are a lot of cleaner and booster apps in the banded list, to be honest, is pretty useless and I never recommend them to use on your phone as nowadays your phone is well capable of managing Ram itself and you don’t need an app to boost the performance of your phone so if you’re using an app like this then uninstall it right now apart from that if you’re looking for a cleaner app then files go also gives you an option to go through the junk files and remove them manually.

Du screen recorder

If you are using d u screen recorder on your phone then the best alternate I recommend you is the screen recorder the app is easy to use just press the record button to select the settings such as mic resolution frame rate etc and that’s it you can easily record your phone screen without any watermark or advertisement you can also enable your front camera while recording videos overall screen recorder is the best alternative I recommend over the du screen recorder.

mi video call

The alternative which I recommend is none other than google’s own app duo I’ve been using duo for quite a long time for video calling and I find the video quality really good. you can do your calling with multiple people at the same time, apart from Google duo you can also use apps like WhatsApp which is also a very good app for video calling, and then we have Skype. Skype also offers a meeting option which allows you to set up a chat or video call meeting.


the last band app on our list is the WeChat and now for this, there are plenty of alternatives available as WhatsApp, Skype, Telegram, etc and you have the same and in some cases even better features available telegram is my favorite among them which I personally use myself more over the other communication apps.

let me know which app you are going to download mention below
