Although the game has been banned by the Indian government, some users can still access the game on their phones.
PubG was one of the many apps banned by the Indian government. Even though the game itself is actually from South Korea, the mobile phone versions come under the gaming company, Tencent. On the basis of all the recent information and inputs collected, it has come to light that the usage of these banned apps somehow raise serious concerns about how they compromise personal data and details of the users that can have consequences.
For protection reasons, The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) banned around 118 Chinese apps being used in India. Pubg was one of them but many versions of it can still be accessed. Many users tell us that the game can be accessed by side-loading the game APK in their phones and then simply by connecting it to the internet. That allows the game users to connect the game servers, download updates and then play the game.
Apparently, the game is still accessible as ISPs in India have not completely blocked the game and filtered out IP addresses of the game servers, therefore, the government will now take strict actions against it.
