India Bans 59 Chinese Mobile Apps (Full List) by miracle4(m): 5:05pm On Jun 29, 2020
As tensions along the border continue, the Government of India has decided to ban Chinese apps diverting data and those with privacy issues.

Government has announced a ban on 59 such Chinese apps, including Tik Tok. Government has decided to disallow the usage of these apps both in mobile and non-mobile Internet-enabled devices.

A government press release announcing the ban stated: "The Ministry of Information Technology, invoking it’s power under section 69A of the Information Technology Act read with the relevant provisions of the Information Technology (Procedure and Safeguards for Blocking of Access of Information by Public) Rules 2009 and in view of the emergent nature of threats has decided to block 59 apps since in view of information available they are engaged in activities which is prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, security of state and public order".

The press release further said that the Ministry of Information Technology has received "many representations raising concerns from citizens regarding security of data and risk to privacy relating to operation of certain apps".

"The Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-IN) has also received many representations from citizens regarding security of data and breach of privacy impacting upon public order issues," the press release mentioned.

It further says that the move to ban these Chinese apps move will "safeguard the interests of crores of Indian mobile and internet users". This decision is a targeted move to ensure safety and sovereignty of Indian cyberspace, it said.

Earlier this month, data from the Finland-based mobile-ranking platform, AppFollow, indicated that applications like TikTok have borne the brunt of Indian anger over Ladakh tensions.


The popular short-form video app was ranked 5 in top-ten free applications on Apple’s platform in India before the May 5 scuffle between Indian and Chinese troops.

A month later, TikTok slipped down to number 10 on App Store.

Among Android users, the same Chinese application dropped from number 3 to number 5 in India ranking.

But it still remained on the list of top-ten popular apps in India.

Popular among youngsters, TikTok has the maximum number of users in India, followed by China and the US.

TikTok crossed the 2 billion mark soon after surpassing the 1.5 billion mark in the first quarter of 2020. Out of the 2 billion, India turned out to be the biggest driver with over 611 million downloads.

According to the report by Sensor Tower, TikTok’s surge in popularity was due to the coronavirus pandemic. People found TikTok to be most entertaining and engaging in quarantine.

Here's a list of the apps that have been banned by the government:

chinese are so scared of the ban from the indian beggars.

as to china, the export to india consists only 0.001% of the huge volume of china's economy , while the even smaller import from india makes up 1% of india's economy. once china retaliates, india will cry like hell.

and you guys dont even have money for xiaomi, you buy china tecno and "redmi" (the cheap version of xiaomi).

chinese only give a shiet to america. any country short of america chinese will not give a shiet to. chinese dont even know their products being "boycotted" by indian. because they dont care those small money from the beggars and also they know those beggars will buy new china
phones after they destroy their old ones in the anti-china protests.

Your right, most indians are middle class or poor, also indians are price sensitive. Why didn't they ban Chinese hardwares manufacturer, they know that they will regret it. Is it Nigerians that will buy thier failed products like micromax, when we get much better value from xiaomi and co. Apple, samsung aren't cheap phones either, the more they have more monopoly the higher the price, just like snapdragon. Imagine snapdragon 875 speculated to cost $250, how much the phone go come be.

Well that one is that business, here not everyone is willing to trade thier kidney to buy ordinary phone. They are much appreciated here

Modified: what will happen if we Nigerians limit import of all this Chinese, american and foriegn companies and promote our own. Take a look at dstv in Nigeria, imagine a foreign company like dstv, mtn dominating us in our communication industry. And we call ourselves gaints of africa.
Go and see how airtel is struggling with jio in india and in Nigeria the are giant here.
That nonsense must stop, when we are struggling to produce basic things like toothpick, how will we progress. Well i blame our corrupt leaders for putting us in this situation.
