If you play BATTLEGROUNDS Mobile India or PUBG, it is possible that data about your Android device will be sent to a server in China. The data sent and received by BATTLEGROUNDS Mobile India APK is from China Mobile Communications Servers in Beijing, Proxima Beta running Tencent in Hong Kong and Microsoft Azure Servers located in the US. , Mumbai, Moscow. We were able to recreate these results by installing a data packet sniper app on our Android phone. It can tell which servers our device is communicating with.
We set it up to log in to all the servers that speak BATTLEGROUNDS Mobile India while we play the game. Then we played an entire match. After that, we checked the logs in the packet sniper. A quick hose search for one of the servers found in the logs (to be precise, 18.104.22.168) revealed that it was operated by the Chinese Mobile Communications Corporation – a Chinese government-owned company – based in Beijing, China. What’s more, our device data was being sent to the said server. You can check out all the screenshots to prove it right.
If this is not enough, BATTLEGROUNDS Mobile India also pings a Tencent server in Beijing while booting the game.
Interestingly, our source was able to obtain logs on their device about BATTLEGROUNDS Mobile India informing the following servers associated with Tencent:

While Kraftan’s BATTLEGROUNDS Mobile India Terms of Service state that players’ personal information will be stored and processed on servers based in India and Singapore, the company also refers to “transferring your data to other countries” to meet “legal requirements”. , Maybe give the company a way to do this.
That doesn’t seem to match the earlier commitment. When PUBG Mobile and 117 other applications were banned in India due to geo-political conflicts with China, Krafton wanted to work with the government to comply with local laws. Since then, he has severed ties with Tencent over publishing the game in India and has pledged $ 100 million to invest in the country.
According to a report on TechCrunch, “the privacy and security of Indian player data is a priority.”
With BATTLEGROUNDS Mobile focusing on India, you think Krafton knows better than delivering Indian device data to a server in China, given the political situation, and obviously not.
Now BJP and Congress politicians have demanded a ban on the game. The Confederation of All India Traders joined last week’s calls to remove BATTLEGROUNDS Mobile India from the currently available Google Play.
While operating in China’s Tencent country, they claim that Kraftan’s employees in India are working on the game, while BattleGrunds Mobile’s’ Google Play Store package contains the word ‘pub mobile’, and they believe that investing $ 22.4 million is a security threat. .
As always, we reached out to Krafton for feedback and will update this story if we hear from the company. Considering that instead of condemning racism in the BATTLEGROUNDS mobile community, it has remained silent, the company is unlikely to respond, despite repeated requests for comments from India boss Aneesh Aravind and chairman CH Kim.
