India: bans the use of 59 Chinese applications

A few days ago, the intelligence services in India presented a list of Chinese applications and asked her government of the country to ban them. And now it seems that the government has finally decided to ban the use of 59 Chinese applications that include popular titles such as TikTok, Helo, UC Browser, Shareit and others.

The reason behind this decision

MeitY reports that the government has investigated the applications after receiving many complaints from the public sector against some of them, as they appear to be collecting a large number of personal data of Indian users. The ban applies to applications on devices iOS and Android, as well as those related not only to smartphones.

In addition, it was discovered that data collection from these applications was done in an organized manner and then the information gathered was sent to servers outside India. The government says its move is likely to end this kind of data theft from malicious applications.

Of course, given the general anti-Chinese sentiment in India lately, it is very likely that the government's decision will be based more on this and will be the main reason for such a drastic move.
