In the last two months, the Indian government has banned a lot of Chinese apps. In June this year, 59 Chinese apps were banned in India, the reason being “threats to sovereignty and integrity.” Last month, 47 more Chinese apps were proscribed and now, 15 new apps have been added to the list. One of them is Xiaomi’s ‘Mi Browser Pro – Video Download, Free Fast & Secure’ app. Also Read - These Mi, Redmi and Poco phones to get MIUI 13 update soon: Check the list

If you have been using Baidu Search or Search Lite, then you will have to search for something else as these have been banned too. ET reported that the government is continuously monitoring the situation. “We will take a call on further action if any of the apps try to come back with different names,” a senior official said.

Besides, TikTok, which was recently banned, is already in talks with the Indian government. The brand has told the government that it is ready to store data in India. It is also denying any breach of user privacy and sovereignty or integrity. TikTok is saying that it is committed to complying with local data laws and privacy requirements.
