The demand for boycott of Chinese apps has been gaining momentum from time to time. Now during the tension on the Indo-China border these days, the number of people uninstalling Chinese apps has also started increasing. Recently there was a lot of debate between YouTube vs Tiktok Content Creator. This debate also suffered a lot due to Chinese Fic Tiktok. Meanwhile, Indian engineers have created a special app to remove Chinese apps from the phone. OneTouch Apps Labs has developed it under the name ‘Remove Chinese Apps’. This app is also available on Google Play Store.
Opposing Chinese apps on the Google Play Store, users are giving them a low rating. Apart from this, the matter of banning popular apps like TicketLock is being raised. Since the ‘Self-reliant India Campaign’ announced in India a few days ago, there is also a demand that users should use Indian apps more. In Google search, users are searching by writing Indian Apps and in the first week of May, the ratio has increased from 31 in the third week to near 100.
What is Remove China Apps?
App developers are taking advantage of the anti-China environment in India. An app has come on Google Play Store, which claims to scan and delete Chinese apps present in smartphones. This app says that Chinese apps are not secure for you and after scanning such apps can be selected and uninstalled from the phone. In just two weeks this app has got more than 1 million downloads and this app has been named ‘Remove China Apps’.
This app has been launched a few days ago and has joined the top download Android tools. It also has a 4.8 users rating. A dragon is visible in the icon of this app, behind which two broom crosses are seen. With the help of this, after recognizing the Chinese apps, users will also be able to select and uninstall them.
Why Chinese apps are not reliable?
First of all, China censors content against itself. While YouTube does not prohibit critical videos, applications such as Tiktok do not promote anti-China videos. This is called censoring and China has been accused of this for years. Also, the Chinese government is also known for breaking into the database of every private and public firm. In view of this, the US has banned the use of Tiktok by its government authority and any person in their respective families.
