HIGHLIGHTS of Apps banned on Feb 14, 2022

  • The government of India is banning 54 new Chinese apps.
  • The list includes one prominent name — Garena Free Fire.
  • The government has so far banned 273 apps in India.

The government of India has ordered to ban 54 new Chinese apps, citing that these pose a security and privacy “threat” to users. While many of them are not as popular or widely used in India, the list includes one prominent name — Garena Free Fire. Surprisingly, the list misses out on the second version of the game, Free Fire Max, which is still visible on Google Play Store.

The government says that these apps are allegedly obtaining critical permissions and assembling sensitive user data. It is being said that the collected data is being misused and transmitted to servers located in a hostile country.

“In addition, there are other serious concerns as some of these apps can carry out Espionage and Surveillance activities via camera/ mic, accessing fine location (GPS) and do malicious network activity similar to previously blocked apps. These apps were allegedly engaged in activities prejudicial to the sovereignty and integrity of the country also posing a serious threat to Security of the State and defense of India,” the government said.

However, this has no links to China and was created by a Singapore-based company. It gained massive popularity when the government banned PUBG in India. The app is on the list as this one falls into the “security threat” category.
