According to the research, Battleground Mobile India was linked to a number of IP addresses, including one allocated to China Mobile Communications Corporation in Beijing, which is under Chinese government control.
Concerns were made shortly after the beta edition’s release that Krafton Inc.’s Indian version of PUBG Mobile, Battle Ground Mobile India, was leaking data about Indian players to Chinese third-party servers.
In September of last year, the Indian government banned 118 smartphone applications, including PUBG, since they were deemed harmful to the country’s sovereignty, integrity, and defence.
Battle Ground Mobile India, according to an investigation by IGN India, exchanged data with foreign servers, including Chinese servers, as well as a few local servers.
According to the research, Battleground Mobile India has been linked to numerous IP addresses, including one from Beijing-based China Mobile Communications Corporation. The programme, which was transmitting data to servers in Hong Kong, Moscow, the United States, and Mumbai, is known to be very precise.
The app was updated in June 2017 to include a new look. Battleground Mobile India was the company’s “beta version,” which allowed a select number of Android users to play the game before it was released to the general public.
“We will continue to closely monitor and protect any data sent to ‘unexpected and restricted IP addresses’ as criticism over the decision heats up,” Krafton said in the midst of the scandal.
“We’ve been working hard to get Battlegrounds Mobile India into the early access test, with the goal of bringing a unique battle royale experience to India in a safe environment as soon as possible.
And, since player data security and privacy are very important to us, we are taking urgent action to address this issue “The company said in a statement.
As the game approaches its official debut, the company claims it is working hard to meet all criteria.
