59 Chinese Apps Banned in India : TikTok, ShareIt, WeChat blocked

chinese apps banned in india


In light of escalating tensions at the border between India and China, the “Boycott Chinese app” movement from the Indian community had been gaining a lot of attention. This has led the Indian government to finally ban 59 chinese mobile apps in India. This list includes popular apps like TikTok, ShareIt, UC Browser and many more. This comes just weeks after an app called “Remove Chinese Apps” started trending in the Indian community which basically tracked all the chinese apps in your phone and helped you remove them.

Now the government has taken a stand to completely block these 59 Chinese apps from operating in India. Here’s the list of all the Chinese apps which have been banned by the government. This should come as a hit on the economy of several Chinese software companies because about 30% of users on TikTok were Indians and at least 10% of the total revenue of TikTok came from India.

India is the fastest growing app-market in the world and such a sudden decrease in users impacts the software companies significantly. The Indian government is concerned about the national security amidst the rising border dispute as Chinese apps have been accused of stealing users’ data before and apps could also be used to create panic by spreading misinformation. How long this ban lasts and how the Chinese government reacts to this, remains to be seen.
