The latest wave is said to include 118 more apps, one of which is the popular gaming app called PUBG.

    As mentioned in the list, some big names like WeChat, PUBG Mobile Lite, Sina News and Mobile Legends: Pocket and ShareSave by Xiaomi are also included.

    The IT ministry says that these chinese apps on Android and iOS platforms may have been used to steal and transmit users' data in an unauthorized manner to servers which have locations outside India. 

    “On the basis of these and upon receiving of recent credible inputs that information posted, permissions sought, functionality embedded as well as data harvesting practices of above stated Apps raise serious concerns that these Apps collect and share data in surreptitious manner and compromise personal data and information of users that can have a severe threat to security of the State,” said the ministry.
