India’s government recently banned 59 Chinese apps like TikTok, ShareIt and CamScanner because of privacy violations. Eventually, it banned more 47 Chinese applications which were the lite or other versions of the previously blocked application. Now a report mentions a list of 275 Chinese applications that are to be examined and Tencent-backed PUBG Mobile is one of them. To most PUBG Mobile players, the news was really shocking.
This change can assure the Indian players that their data is not sent or sold in foreign rather it will be stored locally. However, there are no in-game changes so you can play the game like before.
What Information is stored by PUBG Mobile?
PUBG Mobile says, “You give us information about you when you register for the game (your nominated nickname, and information we import from your connected social media account (WeChat, Facebook, QQ, VKontakte, Twitter, Google Play, Game Center or Line) in order to set up your profile, including your name as it appears on your social media profile, your user ID and your profile picture). You also provide us with information when you set up your profile for the Game (including region location and information you voluntarily elect to provide in order to customise gameplay, such as gender) or your nickname when you log in as ‘guest’ in order to use the Game.”
Though, despite this amendment, we can not even assume that the Indian government won’t scrutinize the application. But we should try to be positive because we must respect the decision of the government, as it will only be for our security.
