Pune, 27 July 2020: After the ban of 59 Chinese apps in India, the government is now preparing to ban 275 other apps which are made in China. The government is checking whether these apps are posing a threat to national security and user privacy in any way. According to sources, the companies whose servers are in China are on the radar.

According to sources, these 275 apps also include the gaming app PUBG, which is part of China’s valuable internet company Tencent. It also includes Xiaomi-made Zili app, e-commerce Alibaba’s Aliexpress app, Resso app and ByteDance’s ULike app. A person associated with this development said that the government can ban all these 275 apps or some of these apps. However, if no flaw is found then no app will be banned.

An official source associated with this development said that China’s apps are constantly being reviewed and efforts are also being made to find out where they are getting their funding from.

According to the official, it has been found that some apps are dangerous for national security. Also, some apps are violating data sharing and privacy rules.

Government is preparing to make rules
According to the report, the Indian Government is now making rules for apps to which all will have to comply, and if they do not, then there will be a risk of those apps getting banned. A senior official said that this is a big plan by the government so that cybersecurity can be strengthened and the data of Indian citizens can be secured. In these rules and guidelines, an app will be told what to do and what not to do.

Recently, the central government banned 59 Chinese apps, including the most popular TikTok. Apart from this, UCWeb and UC News of Alibaba, Shareit and CamScanner were also banned.
