Disputes related to the ‘origin country’ of the Mitron app

Many new reports claimed that the Mitron app was built by a Pakistani developer and hence is Pakistani in origin. Many disputes and conflicts of interest related to the matter emerged in the media. The original name of Mitron was TicTic. Now, there are claims that Mitron is Made in India but the truth says otherwise. 

According to sources, Mitron was developed in Pakistan by a software developer Qboxus. The app is growing continuously in the market due to the claim of its Indian origin. The title of App mitron is strongly associated with a commonly spoken word by Prime Minister of India- Mr. Narendra Modi, giving it, even more, spark in Indian markets. 

Deal of selling Mitron

So, if Mitron is not Indian, why is its founder claiming it to be of Indian origin?

Irfan Sheikh is the developer, founder, and creator of the TicTic app of Pakistani Origin. He claimed about selling the source code of their App to Mitron’s creators in a deal of $34 i.e. approximately Rs. 2,500. In an interview with the Indian News channel, News18, the Sheikh explained that his company develops and sells source codes to interested buyers who are supposed to modify the code later on as per their customization. The whole script was paid for, and whatever way it is used later is in no way controlled by the Pakistani Company. 

However, this doesn’t change the fact that the App is ‘Made in Pakistan’, not in India. Especially in the case of Mitron where no customizations are made in the source code bought by Qboxus.

Is the Mitron App safe and encrypted?

Mitron app doesn’t have any privacy policy making it unsafe. The end users have no idea what they are getting into. People sign up with the app and upload their videos. No information about what is done with the data is available. Many reviews suggest a buggy experience with the App, despite the privacy issues the app has seen growth and high ratings via the reviewers. The only reason behind the high ratings is assumed to be the supposable ‘Indian-origin’ of the app. Therefore, the fact about the Pakistani Origin of App led to significant buzz and might result in a drop in the ratings.

Growth and funding

Mitron has seen an 11-fold jump in daily traffic since the ban of TikTok. This opened new hiring opportunities within the company. 

  • The Appraised Rs. 2 crores from 3one4 Capital and a Letsventure syndicate led by startup investor Arun Tadanki in a seed funding round. 
  • 1.7 crore downloads on Google Play milestone was achieved.

Most of its growth came into motion when the TikTok- Chinese app was banned from India along with various other Chinese apps.
