The Indian government is investigating 275 Chinese apps including PUBG
As you might know, the Indian government has recently banned 47 more Chinese app although they were a clone of previously banned Chinese app which were ban due to security and privacy concerns. Along with that, the Indian Government has prepared a long list of 275 Chinese apps which also Includes PUBG to examine the potential of the security threat for the Nation.
So many clever minds would think of using VPN to breach the ban and to enjoy the Gameplay but no matter how much you try it won’t work that because the Indian Government IT sector has prepared a 3-layer Security wall to let this ban or Restriction remain applicable on your smartphone and it is same as tik tok ban in India
We explain how this PUBG ban will be implemented by the Indian Government
The main and important reason that you cannot access PUBG via VPN is that PUBG will be blocked by Smartphone device ID which has no relationship with the IP Address. You can trick the internet via VPN into believing you’re accessing it from another country yet your Device-ID remain the same of the particular country. So if you ever played PUBG before then you are unlikely to get access to the Game after the ban and the only way to success is via rooting your Smartphone.
What is Device-ID? – A Device ID is a string of numbers and letters that identifies every individual smartphone or tablet in the world. It is stored on the mobile device and can be retrieved by any app that is downloaded and installed. Apps typically retrieve the ID for identification when talking to servers.
On Android, the device ID is the GPS ADID (or Google Play Services ID for Android) while in iOS, a device ID is called the ‘Identity For Advertisers’ (IDFA, or IFA for short)
ISP (Internet service provider) Restriction:
The Internet Service Providers like Vodafone Idea, Airtel, Jio, and others will also block the access of PUBG following the order of the Indian Government. This means that apps like PUBG will be blocked at the server-end and users cannot access it via an internet connection provided by Indian companies.
IP address Restriction:
The Last and most common thing for Indian Government to do is blocking the users IP-address from the database which we all know can be tricked after hiding behind Virtual Private Network or VPN
Why using VPN is not a good idea after all in PUBG?
Even if you breached all these Security factors set by the IT sector of the Indian Government then to using VPN is not a great idea after all. The use of VPN in PUBG is against the policy of the Game, it will trick the PUBG server into thinking that you are here for any foul play and it will impose a ban for 10 long years and you’ll lose all the Ranking, UC, Royal Pass, etc. In-country like Pakistan, Iran, where PUBG has been banned the users tried to get access with VPN and as soon the PUBG server rectified them it immediately banned the account of users using VPN.
As per the latest reports, the Indian government is investigating 275 apps in total with names like Alibaba, ByteDance group, and Tencent games very closely. The government has sent a long list of questions to Chinese app developers. Many of the companies are yet to respond.
