On Wednesday, the government blocked 118 more mobile applications, including popular gaming app PUBG Mobile, terming them prejudicial to the sovereignty, integrity and defence of the nation. The banned apps include Baidu, Baidu Express Edition, Tencent Watchlist, FaceU, WeChat Reading and Tencent Weiyun, besides PUBG Mobile and PUBG Mobile Lite, according to an official statement by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology.
All these banned apps have Chinese links. The government had earlier banned a number of Chinese apps, including TikTok and UC Browser due to concerns over user data security.
"The compilation of these data, its mining and profiling by elements hostile to national security and defence of India, which ultimately impinges upon the sovereignty and integrity of India, is a matter of very deep and immediate concern which requires emergency measures," the official statement said.
