TikTok has been targeted by several countries on espionage charges.

There are other apps that have the same function and with which users can interact in a very agile way.

In the crosshairs of many countries is TikTok, the Chinese video app that has gained enormous popularity around the world, but is involved in serious controversy. First, it was India and the United States that prohibited the use of the app because they suspected that the Chinese government is using it as a spy tool. This led to Australia also being tempted to withdraw it from its borders.

The aforementioned has led us to think that perhaps the dance and video app could cease to exist. This ByteDance-owned app has been downloaded more than 2 billion times during the coronavirus pandemic, according to market research firm Sensor Tower, and 623 million of those downloads were just in the first half of the year.

If this social network disappears, or at least find barriers in more nations, the repercussions would be many. That is why we present 5 apps that can be a very similar alternative, and at the same time a very different experience, from TikTok.
