Updated: Jun 30, 2020

The Government of India has finally banned 59 Chinese Apps which includes some top applications like TikTok, ShareIT, UC browser, shopping app club factory, and other applications.

From some weeks there has been a lot of tension rising on social media about boycotting Chinese products and apps. While there no updates about other Chinese products like smartphones, the government has immediately banned as many as 59 apps in India.

This decision of banning 59 Chinese apps & some apps which are owned by china in some or the other way is taken by following the advice of Indian Intelligence Agency to ban some of these apps. Also, The Indian Cyber Crime Coordination Centre, Ministry of Home Affairs, has also sent an exhaustive recommendation for blocking these malicious apps over a matter of deep and serious concerns of data theft which required immediate measures to be taken out. This means these applications are going to removed from Playstore and App Store soon.

The IT Ministry stated in an official statement that they have received many complaints from different resources regarding misuse of some Chinese mobile apps available on iOS and android for –

“stealing and surreptitiously transmitting users' data in an unauthorized manner to servers which have locations outside India"
