The border dispute between India and China continues. Tensions between the two countries are at their peak. At this time, there is a vigil of Indian security agencies. At the same time, a report revealed that Indian security agencies have identified 52 such apps, which can pose a threat to the security of the country. The agencies have appealed to the government to block 52 mobile applications linked to China or advise Indians not to use these apps.
According to the report of Hindustan Times, the agencies argue that it is not safe to use these 52 Chinese apps. This app is sending data of Indians out of the country in a big way. The report also pointed out that apps developed by Chinese developers or containing Chinese links could be used as spyware or other harmful ware. The list that security agencies have sent to the government includes video conferencing apps like Zoom, TickTalk, UC Browser, Xander, Share It and Clean Master. However, make it clear that no announcement has been made by the government or security agencies about it yet.
The proposal of the security agencies to discontinue the Chinese app also has the support of the National Security Council Secretariat. This proposal is being discussed in the council. The council also believes that these apps can pose a threat to India’s security. The proposal is under discussion. Let us know that in April this year, the Ministry of Home Affairs issued an advisory regarding the use of zoom. This advisory was issued by the Ministry on the proposal of the National Cyber Security Agency Computer Emergency Response Team India (CERT-in). Apart from the government and security agencies, there is a campaign to ban Chinese products on social media. Although this is not the first time that such an atmosphere has been created against the Chinese app, during the era of Coronavirus, there has been a campaign to ban the Chinese app.
