India bans 59 Chinese Aaps, including tiktok


Amidst tension on the borders, India has banned 59 Chinese mobile Aaps, including Tik Tok and UC browser, stating that they are prejudicial to sovereignty, integrity and security of India. The Ministry of Information Technology said that the mobile Aaps were blocked in view of the emergent nature of threats they posed to the country.

“It has been noted recently that such concerns also pose a threat to sovereignty and security of our country. The Ministry of Information Technology has received many complaints from various sources including several reports about misuse of some mobile apps available on Android and iOS platforms for stealing and surreptitiously transmitting users’ data in an unauthorized manner to servers which have locations outside India,” the Ministry said.


It said that the Indian Cyber Crime Coordination Centre has also sent an exhaustive recommendation for blocking these malicious apps. It said that they had received several representations raising concerns about security of data and risk to privacy relating to operation of certain apps. Apart from this, the Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-IN) has also received many representations regarding security of data and breach of privacy impacting upon public order issues.

The Ministry said blocking that mobile Aaps would safeguard the interests of crores of Indian mobile and internet users.
