REMOVE THE 52 CHINESE APPS AND IS PUBG A CHINESE APP?

As a concern of security, with the growing India-China tension and the need to go for ‘Made in India’ products and services can possibly lead to a ban on popular Chinese apps in the country. Intelligence agencies have reportedly advised the Centre to either ban the Chinese apps in India or recommend people to avoid their use.

Intelligence agencies have raised a red flag over the use of 52 apps, most of them with links to China, over concerns that they were collecting user data and possibly also sending them ‘outside’ of the country’s borders. the National Security Council Secretariat has supported the advisory and agreed these apps were a threat to India’s security. The Government of India is also said to have taken cognizance of the issue and was in the process of examining the risks involved with using these apps on a per-app basis. The advisory comes amid the ongoing India-China standoff along LAC after 20 Indian soldiers were killed and several others grievously injured in a face-off with the Chinese troops in Ladakh’s Galwan Valley.

Is PUBG A CHINESE APP?

With boycott of Chinese app, there arises a big question that, does PUBG is Chinese should we uninstall and banned it?

The game was developed for PC by PUBG Corporation, which is a subsidiary of a Korean game developer, Bluehole. The Korean developer partnered with China’s biggest gaming company which is Tencent to enter the gaming market in China. Tencent also introduced the mobile version of PUBG MOBILE. The game became an instant hit in China but it did not get the approval of the Chinese government to monetize it.

Yes, the mobile version of the game is developed by the Chinese company Tencent that makes it a Chinese application. However, the game does not have a Chinese origin as the game is made by Bluehole which is a Korean gaming company. Tencent has a 10 percent stake in Bluehole and other gaming companies like Riot Games, Epic Games, Ubisoft, Activision Blizzard, and others.

Now it has become tough for gamers in India (Indian gaming community) that should they take stand for the country where they live in by boycotting PUBG or still focus on the gaming market of the highest-grossing game PUBG MOBILE.

    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very difficult to get that “perfect balance” between usability and appearance.
    I must say you have done a amazing job with this.
    In addition, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Firefox.
