I t seems that Battlegrounds Mobile India, i.e. PUBG, does not share data with Chinese servers when playing a game. Krafton seems to have released a small update to the game to fix the problem. The update is automatic when you start the game and is a few kilobytes. After applying, you will be prompted to restart the game and log in to your account.

Last week, Battlegrounds Mobile India launched in an open beta for Indian mobile gamers, however, it turned out that the app shares data with a Chinese server, although it claimed otherwise. The developers have taken note of this issue and today launched a new update to the app that stopped this behavior.

Battlegrounds Mobile India has re-emerged as a modified version of the original PUBG mobile game, but only with servers in India and only with Indian players. The Government of India has previously banned PUBG because of its data sharing practices with Chinese servers.

However, according to IGN, Battlegrounds Mobile India continued to share some data with China Mobile Communications Corporation, a state-owned conglomerate. This contradicts all the server data stored in India. Subsequently, Meenakshi Lekhi, chairman of the parliamentary committee on India’s data protection bill and BJP MP, tweeted asked the Ministry of Electronics and Informatics (MeitY) to “investigate”.

Nevertheless, sources familiar with Krafton’s plans have told IGN India that the company is aware that user data is being transmitted to Chinese servers and is working to improve it. In order to make it worthwhile, Battlegrounds Mobile India is seen as a recurring game of India’s favorite fighting game, despite being packed with cumbersome messaging and features.
