Why Indian Govt. Issues an Order to Ban Garena Free Fire & 53 Other Chinese Apps?

2-years back, in September 2020 Indian Government banned the massively popular online battle royale game, PUBG Mobile, and 118 Chinese apps. Now, the Government is all-ready to repeat history as it issued an order to ban Garena Free Fire & 53 other Chinese apps due to the same concern, a threat to natural security. The Government has forbidden over 300+ Chinese apps over different tensions until now.

The list of 54 banned apps includes apps from music players to selfie cameras, app locks, notepads, gaming, and video chat. The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology confirmed the news of the ban and stated, the apps allegedly obtained various critical permissions and collected sensitive user data and were involved in transmitting the data to servers located in a hostile country.

According to the IT ministry, these applications were involved in surveillance activities via camera/mic, accessing the GPS of the user, running malicious software and sending user details to China-based data centres without user consent.
