印度再禁118款中国应用,PUBG和支付宝在列

9月2日,印度电子和信息技术部宣布将禁用118款中国应用。两个月前,因数据安全问题,印度曾禁用59款中国应用。

这一次,印度援引《信息技术法》第69条称,此举是为了“印度的主权和完整、印度国防、国家安全和公共秩序”。新禁令清单包括手机游戏应用PUBG,以及百度、腾讯和小米等公司的应用,涉及范围包括游戏、工具类等产品,包括PUBG、PUBG移动版、百度、百度极速版、腾讯Watchlist、腾讯VooV会议、腾讯微云、企业微信、微信读书、FaceU、ZAKZAK、支付宝、淘宝移动版等在内的应用。

印度电子和信息技术部称,它们收到了来自多渠道的投诉,包括安卓和iOS平台上的一些移动应用程序滥用数据的报告,以“未经授权的方式窃取用户数据传输到印度以外地区的服务器上”。该部还表示,“对印度国家安全和国防有敌意的人对这些数据进行编纂,最终侵害了印度主权完整,这是非常紧迫的问题,需要采取紧急措施。印度内政部网络犯罪协调中心也发来了一份详尽的建议,要求封杀这些恶意应用。同样,在印度各党代表中也有类似声音,在公共空间内已有强烈的呼声,要求对损害印度主权以及公民隐私的应用采取严格的行动。“

7月底,Economic Times曾报道称,印度政府已经准备了一份包括PUBG在内的275款中国应用名单,这些应用或成为印度针对中国应用的第二批名单,包括腾讯发行的游戏PUBG、阿里巴巴的跨境电商平台AliExpress(速卖通)、小米的短视频应用Zili、字节跳动的流媒体应用Resso和图片编辑应用ULike等都在媒体猜测的禁用名单当中。

彼时,也有印度媒体称,列入审查清单的应用数目不是275款,而是47款。部分应用应该是此前被禁应用的Lite版本或替代版本,例如TikTok Lite、Helo Lite、ShareIt Lite、Bigo Lite和VFY Lite。

当时,PUBG是印度用户最关心的是否会封禁的应用之一,因为印度是PUBG最大的市场。当地玩家十分青睐PUBG,据Sensor Tower统计显示,该游戏在印度拥有1.75亿次下载量,占其总下载量的24%。

就在8月30日,印度总理莫迪还督促玩具和游戏业“自力更生”。据Times of India报道,莫迪敦促初创企业和企业家开发创新的 “印度玩具和游戏”,以满足国内需求,并增加其在全球玩具业务中的份额。

而在更早之前,6月29日,印度电子和信息技术部宣布,出于国家安全的考虑,禁止59款和中国有关联的应用。第一批59款应用名单中,TikTok、Helo、微信、Shareit、UC浏览器、Kwai、Likee、Club Factory等,从短视频、社交媒体、跨境电商平台到工具类应用,无一幸免。
