    However, Krafton has not clearly specified how would it verify parental consent. It might most probably send a text message to the parents’ mobile asking them for permission to allow their kids to play the game. The SMS could have an OTP, which the player might have to enter in the game to play Battlegrounds Mobile India. However, this is just speculation at this point though.

    Gaming Play-Time Limit

    The Battlegrounds Mobile India privacy policy also mentions that players under the age of 18 years cannot play the game for more than three hours a day. It is a great way to give parents relief as most worry about how much time they play the game disrupting their daily lives.
