Biggest threat to data security 

There is a growing demand for action on mobile apps that compromise security. Companies like Bait Dance, a Chinese internet company dominated by video sharing apps, are denying this. But officials say a Chinese-linked app developed by Chinese developers, whether for Android or iOS, could be used in the form of spyware or other harmful software.


Taiwan, US, Germany ban zoom application 

In April this year, the Home Ministry issued an advisory on the use of Zoom. The ministry issued the advisory on the proposal of the National Cyber ​​Security Agency Computer Emergency Response Team India (CERT-in). India is not the first country to have banned the use of the Zoom app in government. Earlier, Taiwan also banned government agencies from using the Zoom app.

Indian security agencies have asked the government to block 52 mobile apps linked to China or advise people not to use them. Because it is not safe to use. These apps are sending large amount of data outside India. The people involved in this case have given this information.
