India bans 47 Chinese apps, including TikTok Lite

  • India bans 47 Chinese apps, including TikTok Lite

India bans 47 Chinese apps which were clones of 59 Chinese apps which were banned in June. These banned clones include Tiktok Lite, Helo Lite, SHAREit Lite, BIGO LIVE Lite and VFY Lite. The order was issued on Friday.

This comes a month after the government banned 59 Chinese applications as relationships between India and China remain strained. The government is also reportedly considering action against another 250 Chinese apps.

Piyush, CEO and Founder of Rooters Sports Technology App made the following statement. 

“This second digital strike by our Government on China is a great move yet again as all these 47 apps were operating as clones of the 59 Chinese apps barred from using earlier. The ban would safeguard Indian users’ data and protect the country against the potential threat these apps pose to our national security. Moreover, this initiative will further open up opportunities for more Indian apps to take up the limelight and onboard users to provide them with their services. Homegrown apps already witnessed a significant increase in downloads and user signups on their platforms after the Government's ban announcement last month. We hope Indians will continue choosing apps which are made in India, for India,” 

The list of apps banned last month include Tik Tok, Clash of Kings, Helo and others.
