TikTok, Clash Of Kings among 59 Chinese apps banned by the Indian Government!

In a major decision taken by the Government of India, 59 Chinese applications have been banned which includes famous social media app Tiktok, and gaming apps like Mobile Legends, Clash of Kings. The move comes amidst the rising border tensions between the two countries, which have led many people in India to call for a boycott of Chinese goods and services.

The decision which was taken by Ministry of Electronics, Information and Technology stated that

The Ministry of Information Technology has received many complaints from various sources including several reports about misuse of some mobile apps available on Android and iOS platforms for stealing and surreptitiously transmitting users’ data in an unauthorized manner to servers which have locations outside India. The compilation of these data, its mining and profiling by elements hostile to national security and defence of India, which ultimately impinges upon the sovereignty and integrity of India, is a matter of very deep and immediate concern which requires emergency measures.

They further stated

The Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-IN) has also received many representations from citizens regarding security of data and breach of privacy impacting upon public order issues. Likewise, there have been similar bipartisan concerns, flagged by various public representatives, both outside and inside the Parliament of India. There has been a strong chorus in the public space to take strict action against Apps that harm India’s sovereignty as well as the privacy of our citizens. On the basis of these and upon receiving of recent credible inputs that such Apps pose threat to sovereignty and integrity of India, the Government of India has decided to disallow the usage of certain Apps, used in both mobile and non-mobile Internet enabled devices.
