Earlier this month, the Indian government announced ban on 59 Chinese apps, which included TikTok, Shein, ShareIt, Mi Community, among others.
With the banning of these apps, several unpopular apps have so far started to gain popularity. According to an analysis platform report Sensor tower, between 29 June and 8 July, apps like ShareChat and See all both video sharing applications from India, there has been an increase in the number of downloads since the ban on Chinese applications.
One of the applications that benefit from the ban is Ding Dong, which suddenly hit one of the main trends of the day (July 14).
So, we started searching the app and found that the Ding Dong The application is being promoted by Indian film and television actress Ena Saha and is developed by Jarek Entertainment.

At the moment, the app was seen only on the Google Play Store, where there are several criticisms. Interestingly, comments are only from the 5th of July and the ratings are five stars in a row or zero. At the time of writing the story, the Play Store page showed more than 1,000 installs of the app and had an overall review rating of 4.2.
As seen in the screenshots sent on the Play Store, the app's user interface mimics TikTok.
The app description says: "DingDong is not your common destination for short-form mobile video. It's raw, real and limitless – whether you're brushing your teeth at 8:15 am or having breakfast at 8:19 pm. from the gut, "come as you are", the narrative is counted in 15 seconds. With DingDong, life is more fun when you live in the moment and go further to explore. "
Since today, we've also seen some cookie cutter tweets promoting the Ding Dong app.

And this is where the darkest part comes:
We also looked at the developer, Jarek Entertainment & # 39; s Twitter profile, which was created in June 2020, and currently follows only eight people, including a production house, actors such as Ena Saha, Mimi Chakraborty, Nusrat and Yash Dasgupta, director-writer Anshuman Pratyush and two publications, including The telegraphand Hey Samay. Except for the publications, the actors mentioned and the director are working together on a new film called SOS Kolkata.
Could it be part of a promotional campaign? Only time will tell. However, we are currently not sure about the security of the application. And your promotions in Twitter it could be misleading as well.
With shutting down applications like TikTok, users have been looking for alternatives and Ding Dong The application may be taking advantage of this vulnerability.
