In a bid to leverage the ban on short video app TikTok, fraudsters have now taken to WhatsApp and other messaging services to promote links to a fake TikTok Pro. The Maharashtra cyber cell has warned internet users to not click on any such link as it can potentially steal user data. The message claimed that the China-based TikTok app has been relaunched in India as TikTok Pro. The message also hosts an APK file to download TikTok.
