Chinese apps banned again

Yesterday, the government of India released a list of 118 apps and games set to be banned from the next few weeks. The list includes several clones of TikTok and other dating apps of Chinese origin. PUBG Mobile and PUBG Mobile Lite are part of that list and will be banned as well. The government states it has done this to “safeguard the interests of crores of Indian mobile and internet users. This decision is a targeted move to ensure safety, security and sovereignty of Indian cyberspace.”

The game was previously banned in Nepal in order to prevent addiction in your players. The game has been long critcized for causing mental and physical harm to the players of all ages. After hundred of van requests from parents over the tow yeast of its existence, the game has finally been banned.

However, the reason for PUBG Mobile’s ban is more related to the ongoing border disputes with China than its effects on individuals. In fact, there are several alternatives to PUBG MOBILE that you can play in the country right now without worrying.
