Indian Army Asks Personnel To Delete 89 Apps To Plug Information Leak
The list of applications include Facebook, TikTok, Tinder, PUBG, Instagram, Truecaller, etc.
Soldiers and other personnel from the Indian Army will no longer be able to play PUBG on their phones, neither will they be able to connect with their loved ones via Facebook or Instagram. It has come to light that the Indian Army has asked its personnel to delete any of the 89 apps in a list that has been released if they happen to be installed on their phones. The large list also includes Truecaller, Snapchat, Tinder, and Bumble.
According to the Army, this move has been made to prevent the leakage of crucial information from the devices being used by its personnel. The list includes Chinese as well as non-Chinese apps. At the end of June, the Indian government had issued a complete ban on 59 Chinese apps which it claimed were harvesting data from Indians. The list had included TikTok, WeChat, UC Browser, Shareit, Shein, Helo, Likee, Club Factory and more.
