There has always been a ruckus about privacy with the Chinese app. Intelligence agencies from India to the US periodically warn people about Chinese apps. Now Indian intelligence agencies have asked the Indian government to block 52 Chinese mobile apps and not to use people.
According to the report of Hindustan Times, the intelligence agencies say that these Chinese apps are not good in terms of security and privacy. Through these apps, personal information of Indian mobile users is going to the server in China.
The list of apps that agencies have sent to the government has names like video conferencing app Zoom, short-video app TickTalk, UC Browser, Gender, Shareite, and Clean-Master.
A senior government official said that the recommendation of intelligence agencies was supported by the National Security Council Secretariat recently. The letter sent to the government said that these apps could be harmful to India’s security. An o
fficial said that the recommendations of the agencies are under discussion. The parameters and risks associated with each mobile app are being investigated carefully.
These are the names of all suspected Apps
Please tell that in April this year, the Ministry of Home Affairs warned about the privacy of Zoom. India is not the only one to ban the zoom video calling app. Prior to India, zoom has been banned in countries like America. Tesla and Facebook prohibited their employees from using zoom. Taiwan also prohibited the use of zoom.
Officials said there were inputs that many Android and iOS apps were either designed by Chinese developers or launched by companies with Chinese links that had the potential to be used as spyware or other malware.
