The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) on Thursday 30th July 2020, announced the lifting of ban on the live streaming app Bigo Live.
Bigo Live is owned by the Singapore-based BIGO Technology. The ban was lifted after a meeting between the PTA and Vice President of BIGO’s South Asia Operations John Zhang.
BIGO expressed its appreciation to PTA for the opportunity to clarify and better understand the security features of the app as well as the comprehensive content monitoring and data privacy measures that have been put in place, thus resulting in the lifting of the ban on Bigo Live.
BIGO reaffirmed its commitment to fully comply with Pakistan national laws and values, and will ensure that Bigo Live remains a platform for wholesome infotainment. BIGO also appreciated PTA’s feedback and looks forward to continued engagement and partnership with the Pakistani authorities to create a positive and trusted virtual community for all users.
