Government Bans 59 Chinese Apps TikTok, UC Browser, & Other Chinese Apps

On Monday 29th June 2020, the Government of India has banned 59 Chinese owned apps including TikTok, UC Browser, ShareIT, WeChat, Likee and others. The ministry says that these apps were engaged in activities which are “prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, the security of the state and public order.”

Information Technology and Ministry of Electronics has confirmed in a press release and listed 59 apps which will be blocked on the internet and also on non-internet devices.

This move against the Chinese apps came after the user’s complaint about stealing the data. The data was later transmitted to other servers which are located out of India. Banning these Chinese apps is not a surprise for us, as earlier also we got the news when PM Modi announced about banning Chinese apps in India.
