Recently, the Indian government issued an order to ban 59 Chinese applications, including TikTok. The decision to do that came following the violent face-off between the two countries at the Line of Actual Control. However, according to the Indian government, the reason for their action is because the apps pose a lot of privacy and security concerns. Apart from the TikTok app, another app blocked by the Indian government is Xiaomi’s Mi Community. The tech company makes use of the forum to make the necessary announcement and receive issues from its users. Following the ban, the company has now been able to issue a public notice, stating that it’ll adhere to the orders, processes, and protocols required by the government. Furthermore, in the notice, Xiaomi also stated that it has temporarily disabled its Mi community website and app in India.
