The government has already banned more than 100 Chinese apps including the most popular apps such as Tik ToK, PUBG, and We chat. As per the latest reports, The Indian government has banned another set of applications. The list comprises 50 applications. Around 270 applications have been banned by the government till now and this could lead to major app bans in the country. There has been an official list of the games which are to be banned but most of the apps are removed from the Google Play Store.
The reason behind the sudden takedown of these applications is still not known. However, the users of these apps are likely to get disappointed. The most played game of all time is Garena Free Fire and it has also been taken down from the play store. The distributor of the popular game has not stated anything about the recent takedown of the popular game Garena Free Fire. Apple and Google have also not responded to the question of why the apps have disappeared.
It is being assumed that India is careful about its cyber security and these Chinese apps can take the important data of the consumer, reading to privacy, and security theft. Tencent X river and NetEase OnmyoJI Arena have also been banned in the country. The border dispute has also become the reason for these major applications withdrawn from the Google play store.
The Google Play store has restricted access to these applications because of the
government order. Applications play a major part in transferring confidential information as they involve enabling certain personal information. The data which is collected by the user in form of the necessary information can be used for various purposes and lead to security theft. Government is concerned about the security of its citizens and has to make sure that no personal data of its citizens is taken from the citizens of India. The application is banned to ensure a highly secured internet experience and the safety of consumers.
