PUBG Mobile and 117 more Chinese apps banned by Indian Government

02 September 2020
All apps are expected to be removed from both Google Play and the App Store in the coming days.

Sort by:

This is clearly linked to their recent misadventures near border. Every misstep apparently meets with such economic non-military measures... ..I canโ€™t blame Indian government for this!

That's amazing !!!!! That's a great news banning trash apps like tiktok and pubg like a pro.

Swordman, 03 Sep 2020Agreed. Banning Pubg is not even for privacy concerns, but ... moreIt is about the PUBG mobile here and not the console version which has existed for many years. Mobile version is partly owned by Tenecent, a Chinese company while the console version is not.

Fayth, 03 Sep 2020what if they use VPN?Yes you can.. along with other techniques.

Unless the entire world ban a specific country, or a specific country isolate themselves entirely like a intranet.

Any such ban is easily overcome. It only cause irritation and steps.. which stop casual players from playing.. but nothing will stop the determined.

PUbG is a great game to ruin your costly time and life easily. It is a addiction like alcohol and other drugs.๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ

Akashraj, 03 Sep 2020You must be joking right? Some are sad that these apps are ... moreRightly said, youth know here in India, the sane ones that these apps are actually useless and wasting their time... 95% of them will support this decision..

5% will cry and throw their phones๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ

Swordman, 03 Sep 2020Agreed. Banning Pubg is not even for privacy concerns, but ... moreYou must be joking right? Some are sad that these apps are banned but this won't affect their voting preference and they'll flock to the alternatives. On the other hand, youngsters are pissed off by the National entrance exams and unemployments. That may influence their votes.

Anonymous, 03 Sep 2020Soon indians will hate india more than china. Imagine a gam... moreAgreed. Banning Pubg is not even for privacy concerns, but because of the recent India-China conflicts. Pubg existed in India for years alr and they are only Banning it now because of ... privacy concerns? Banning tiktok and Pubg is jus alienating the youth in India. The government doesn't realise how wildly popular these apps are in India. And guess what, most of the people using Tiktok or Pubg rn are young adults or teenagers and they can already vote or do so in a few years, and I highly doubt they are going to vote for the current government.

YoshiAkash, 02 Sep 2020It's a game ffs. Are you promoting other countries to ... moreThere are other games to play instead of childish PUBG Mobile. Yes, the graphics are good, but nowadays littered with 10-yr olds and hackers. There are still other games to play, open up your mind.

  • MrLong

Nice move banning those apps.

Besides I've noticed many Chinese apps get away with installing malware or has suspicious behaviour.

You should see the TCL/Alcatel/Infinix preinstalled malware (that steals your money) debacle, I don't have the link but feel free to look it up in XDA or Android Authority.

If banning such apps are due to privacy issues, well then Facebook and Google are also doing that so it's a silly excuse. But the News Media Bargaining code will soon force FB and Google to take action so you don't have to mind those two platforms.

If they really care about user privacy they would've banned Chinesephonesmakers UI which have access to the everything in phone.
