53 China apps including Xiaomi, TikTok, WeChat and more are in India's list due to security risk


If you still remember the "Remove China Apps" news, looks like it's not over yet. According to sources, it seems that the India intelligence officials have taken this matter into their own hands and actually prepared a list of apps that are deemed "dangerous" in terms of security risk

From the list of apps, there are 53 apps and this includes Xiaomi apps like the Mi Store and even Mi Community. Besides that, TikTok is also included (no surprised) as well as Clash of Kings, WeChat, and many more. Furthermore, the list is supported by India's National Security Council and have advised the government to take action on banning them, but so far nothing has happened yet. 

The National Security Council also mentioned that it's not just the fact of potential data leak from the apps listed, but also the potential to "degrade network conditions in case of conflict". That's kinda bizarre if you ask us but we're not the experts here. Anyway, below is the list of China apps under the red flag.

Zoom was supposed to be in the list too for not having any end-to-end encryption for free users, the company initially said that the intention was meant to keep the door open for law enforcement cooperation but eventually gave in to public concerns and will integrate it from July 2020 onwards. What do you think of this situation? Our words of advice - be careful of what you share online regardless of how well the app security is, you don't need to tell the whole world about yourself.
