Other Official Reports

The ET reported last month that the government has prepared a list of 275 more Chinese apps including PUBG which could be banned on concerns of data security. The discussion was taken after tensions on the border between India and China rises.

As per the Officials, “The government had received many complaints about misuse of some mobile apps 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.”

These apps would send user’s data to third party company, which could be either advertisement or some Country’s Intelligence. Hence, there is high risk involvement of security.

So, from the above reason, this big decision was taken to ban these apps. PUBG have the largest market cap in India, with about more than 175 million installs till date and 24% of the total downloads.
