Government Questions Banned Chinese Apps Over Political Affiliations


The government has sent a list of 80 questions to the banned applications. The questions are believed to have been divided into sections such as “company”, “ownership”, “services & security”, “privacy policy” and “data-related information”.


Through queries addressed under the company section, the banned applications have been asked about their parent companies, countries of incorporation, and whether the parent entities are required to share data with the Chinese government. They have also been asked about differences in permissions sought from Indian users as compared to those in other countries. Other questions in the list are about the apps’ policy for incident response, version update and disclosure with regard to the app providing information to India’s nodal cyber security authorities, the Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In).
