The video-sharing Chinese app Tiktok has been deemed the most visited and popular website of 2021. According to Cloudflare’s Radar service, TikTok.com has overtaken Google.com (#2), Facebook.com (#3), Microsoft.com (#4), and Apple.com (#5) to become the most popular website in 2020 and 2021 based on aggregated statistics.
Upon further investigation, Cloudflare has uncovered that on February 17, 2021, TikTok initially became the most popular app on mobile devices, a position it would hold for a few more days. It wasn’t until August 10, 2021, that being number one became the norm rather than the exception. When TikTok isn’t in the spotlight, Google steps in for a moment.
