India bans 118 mobile apps including PUBG

India on Wednesday banned another 118 mobile apps including Tencent Holdings's popular videogame PUBG, as it stepped up the pressure on Chinese technology companies following a standoff with Beijing at the border.

The list of 118 mostly Chinese apps also includes applications from Baidu and Xiaomi's ShareSave.

These "apps collect and share data in a surreptitious manner and compromise personal data and information of users that can have a severe threat to the security of the State," India's technology ministry said in a statement.

It added the apps threatened India's sovereignty and integrity. (Reuters)
