Earlier on 29th June 2020, the Government of India had blocked access to 59 mobile apps and on 2nd September 2020, 118 more apps were banned under section 69A of the Information Technology Act.

Aditya Narang, Co-founder & MD of SafeHouse Technologies, A cybersecurity tech enterprise that provides solutions to secure mobile phones, commented, “With the ban of additional 43 apps, the government has yet again proved that the security and hygiene in the Indian smartphone and app ecosystem need to be maintained. The biggest security concern is that a lot of apps on your smartphones collect massive amounts of data which has nothing to do with the service it provides.”

“It takes several security-sensitive and intrusive permissions which the user doesn’t understand but ends up agreeing to. As the threat to secure user data is increasing, users must make sure their mobile phones are protected, secured and encrypted”, he added.

The official order further states that the Government is committed to protecting the interests of citizens and sovereignty and integrity of India on all fronts and it shall take all possible steps to ensure that.

The apps that were banned earlier in the month of June and September include PUBG Mobile, WeChat, Baidu, Tencent Watchlist, PUBG Mobile Lite, etc.
