India: urges boycotts in 52 Chinese applications

The dispute between India and China holds up well. Lately the movement #BoycottChinaApps, has gained particular publicity in India and now Indian intelligence services have identified 52 Chinese applications, which the government it must prohibit or encourage its citizens not to use them.


Authorities say some applications raise huge sums of money data, which are received from other countries. According to the authorities, the 52 applications that have been identified are a matter of national security.

52 Chinese applications are proposed to be excluded

Ο full list of the 52 Chinese applications identified as dangerous in India include:

Vault-Hide, Vigo Video, Bigo Live, Weibo, UC News, BeautyPlus, LIKE, Kwai, ROMWE, NewsDog, Photo Wonder, APUS Browser, VivaVideo- QU Video Inc, Perfect Corp, CM Browser, Virus Cleaner (Hi Security Lab) , Mi Community, DU recorder, YouCam Makeup, Mi Store, 360 Security, DU Battery Saver, DU Browser, DU Cleaner, DU Privacy, Clean Master - Cheetah, CacheClear DU apps studio, Baidu Translate, Baidu Map, Wonder Camera, ES File Explorer, QQ International, QQ Launcher, QQ Security Center, QQ Player, QQ Music, QQ Mail, QQ NewsFeed, WeSync, SelfieCity, Clash of Kings, Mail Master, Mi Video call-Xiaomi

According to researchers, there is tangible evidence that these applications can be used for monitoring or other malicious activities.

A few months ago, the Indian government advised its officials to stop using Zoom for security reasons, as servers of popular teleconferencing software based in China.

Recently an application with the name Remove China Apps, promised to be able to locate Chinese apps on a device and remove them. However, it was later removed by itself Play Store, for violating his misleading policy.

Boycott in China?

At the moment, all the apps that have been highlighted are still available in the Play Store and App Store, and we don't know if the Indian government will eventually ban them. 

However, despite the #BoycottChinaApps movement, many Indian users still have these applications on their devices and will most likely continue to use them.
