    Highlights of the Story

    • Indian Intelligence Agencies have asked to ban 52 Chinese apps in India.
    • The list includes apps from Tencent as well as Shareit, TikTok, LIKE, and others.
    • TikTok, Vigo Video, SHAREit, Shein are among the Chinese apps that contribute to India’s economy.

    As per the latest update from the Indian Intelligence Agencies, they have asked the Central Government of India to ban 52 Chinese mobile apps in India as they engage in a huge dump of user data and can be misused.

    In a request to the PM Narendra Modi, the agencies have asked to issue advisories against 52 apps from China which although is a step towards giving the Indian manufacturers and developers a boost, however, the compounding effect of the growing unrest between India and China is also one of the reasons why Indians have been asked to boycott Chinese apps.

    All this was sparked due to the latest intrusion by the Chinese troops in Ladakh that has resulted in ongoing unrest between China and India. This is why the Chinese smartphone maker OPPO had to cancel the launch event scheduled on June 17.
