    Highlights of the Story

    • India and China are again in a border dispute invoked by China amidst the Coronavirus Pandemic
    • Amid the border dispute and the China being blamed for the Coronavirus pandemic, Chinese apps have garnered a lot of hatred among users
    • Rising privacy concerns from several Chinese apps has only added to the wound and resulted in a massive shift of user base

    China has continuously been in the media for the last few months, mostly for the wrong reasons. The ongoing border dispute between India and China has only made things worse and increased the anti-China sentiment in India. Chinese apps have also been involved with a lot of privacy concerns in the past and garnered a lot of negative attention. Several apps including UC Browser, Mi Browser, CamScanner, and even TikTok have been accused of wrongdoings for various reasons.

    This has led to a massive hatred among most Indians as they try to move away from Chinese appliances, smartphones, and even applications are given privacy concerns. A new app called “Remove China Apps” has gained immense popularity with over 5 million downloads in just two weeks of its launch. The app is available for free on Google Play Store and can scan your smartphone for user-installed applications of Chinese Origin and helps you easily un-install the Chinese apps.

    The app from OneTouch AppLabs has received over 96,000 reviews and has a rating of 4.8 suggesting that the app has been effective for most of the users. The app doesn’t ask for any permissions so you do not have to worry about the privacy issues, it can be downloaded for free and did not come with ads in our experience. The anti-China sentiment throughout the world is mainly driven due to the COVID Pandemic and as much as 70% of Indians hold China responsible for the spread of the pandemic according to reports. This sentiment only grew stronger due to the ongoing issues at the border between China and India.

However, if there is an app that you are using that is trustworthy and irreplaceable then it might not be worth removing. In most cases, there are better alternatives from companies that take user privacy more seriously and it is not difficult to find replacements for most Chinese apps.
