Is the Battlegrounds Mobile India game transmitting data from Indian users to Chinese servers? Krafton discusses the current situation and what the firm aims to do in terms of player privacy and security on the platform.
According to a recent revelation, Battlegrounds Mobile India is transmitting data from Indian players to Chinese servers. That was problematic, given that doing so could result in the game being banned in India. To recall, the Indian authorities banned PUBG Mobile in September for the same reason. The authorities was concerned at the time that the Chinese software was transmitting user data from India to Chinese servers. Krafton has finally responded to the issue of Battlegrounds Mobile India users’ data being shared with Chinese servers.
In the previous few days, various media publications and ministers have raised the problem, prompting Krafton to publish a response. The “data shared with third parties is simply to enable specific game features,” according to the game developer.
“Krafton will continue to thoroughly monitor and protect any data being sent to unexpected and restricted IP addresses prior to the official launch,” the game creator said in a statement to the media.
