Continuing the digital war with China, the Indian government has banned 43 more Chinese apps today. These include the popular apps in shopping, games, and dating. The ban was reasoned as these apps were termed to be harmful to the nation’s sovereignty and integrity, and done based on inputs from India’s Cybercrime Coordination Center.
