With PUBG Mobile reportedly among the 275 Chinese apps being checked for national security and user rights, Battle Royale updated the user privacy policy in India. This move is seen as a precautionary measure to avoid banning the country’s game.  

While the rumours suggesting that PUBG is under Indian government surveillance are not yet verified by authorities, apprehension is still hovering after the sudden ban of 59 Chinese apps like popular games like Mobile Legends : Bang Bang and Kings Clash.  

Following these leaks, PUBG Mobile appears to have changed India’s privacy policy. Here’s 5 key privacy policy takeaways.
