Complete List of 52 Chinese Apps on IB Radar


TNI Bureau: According to media reports, Indian Intelligence agencies have red flagged over 50 applications that are ‘linked to China’ over safety and security concerns. They include popular video sharing apps such TikTok, Video conferencing app Zoom, file sharing apps like Xender and Shareit, web browsers like UC Browser, social media sites like Helo, instant messaging apps like WeChat, online shopping portals like Club Factory and Shein, beauty camera apps like Wonder Camera and BeautyPlus, gaming apps like Clash of kings and basic app cleaning tools like Clean-master.

Intel agencies have urged the government to completely block these apps and remove them from our servers or send out an advisory to people to stop using them over safety violations. The entire list of Chinese applications has also been backed up by the National Security Council Secretariat.

According to media sources, the reasons cited by Intelligence Bureaucracies primarily focus on the concern that these applications have been extracting enormous quantities of confidential data from the users and distributing it outside the country.
