Government bans clones of banned Chinese apps

Date: 29 July 2020 Tags: Miscellaneous
  • The government crackdown on Chinese apps continued, with the information and technology ministry banning 47 new apps. The move comes nearly a month after the ban on 59 Chinese apps, taking the total number of mobile applications blocked to 106.
  • The new apps include clones and different versions of some of the original apps and action may soon be taken against more Chinese apps operating in India.
  • It is believed that the government is closely scrutinising other apps that have Chinese bearings. These include top gaming app PUBG (by Chinese internet giant Tencent) and AliExpress (by Alibaba group).
  • The government is concerned about the data collection and data harvesting practices of these apps and feels that these processes may be prejudicial to the security of the country.
