Indian Government has just issued an interim order to ban 59 Chinese apps. This order claims that these apps “engage in activities” that harm the integrity, and defense of India. Such an order to ban multiple smartphone apps is unprecedented and leaves a large gap in the way people use their smartphones. This is likely because some of the banned apps are extremely popular in the Indian market with hundreds of thousands of app installs.
