The government of India has ordered to ban 54 apps that have links to China and pose a threat to the country's security, according to people familiar with the development.

The apps that would be banned include Garena Free Fire, Tencent's Xriver, and NetEase's Onmyoji Arena.

So far, the government has blocked nearly 300 apps in the country since border tensions erupted with China in May 2020. Google has informed that it has “temporarily blocked access” to the apps in question from Google Play in the country as a result of the government order.

"These 54 apps allegedly obtain various critical permissions and collects sensitive user data. These collected real-time data are being misused and transmitted to servers located in hostile country," the government said in a statement.

"In addition there are other serious concerns as some of these apps can carry out Espionage and Surveillance activities via camera/ mic, accessing fine location (GPS) and do malicious network activity similar to previously blocked apps.

These apps were allegedly engaged in activities prejudicial to the sovereignty and integrity of the country also posing a serious threat to Security of the State and defense of India."

Garena's popular battle royale game Free Fire is arguably the most popular app among the fresh batch, with over 184,700 ratings on App Store and over 105,501,450 on Google Play.
