The Chinese video-sharing platform is the only app not owned by Facebook to make the global top five of downloads.
In its home country, TikTok’s owner ByteDance also holds the top spot with the Chinese language video app Douyin.
TikTok’s continued popularity emerged even after former US President Donald Trump tried to ban it in America.
Mark Zuckerberg’s social media giant accounted for the rest of the top five with Facebook’s flagship app as well as WhatsApp, Instagram and Facebook Messenger all making an appearance.
Last year, then-President Donald Trump issued an executive order to ban new downloads of the TikTok app in the US.
The Trump administration claimed that TikTok posed a national security risk as the Chinese government had access to its user data. The company repeatedly denied the allegations.
Former President Donald Trump wanted to ban new downloads of TikTok in the US
Since becoming US President in January this year Joe Biden has withdrawn Mr Trump’s executive order.
As well as seeing off that challenge in the US the company has been exploring new ways to attract users.
TikTok Stories will allow users to see content posted by accounts they follow for 24 hours before they are deleted.
