New Delhi The Ministry of Electronics in India has banned 54 Chinese apps, according to media reports. Some of the apps include those of Tencent and Alibaba, which were already banned in India.
Ministry circles confirmed to dpa that a total of 54 apps had been banned, but did not confirm which country they originate from. Google confirmed to dpa on Monday that the company had recently received instructions from the Electronics Ministry to block the apps in the Play Store. Google had notified the affected developers and temporarily blocked access to the apps. An earlier ban of the social network TikTok and more than 200 other Chinese apps was based on security concerns and the fact that some user data had been misused and transferred to servers outside the country. These apps can no longer be found in the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store in India. (dpa)
