The border clash between India and China has resulted in some early consequences, especially for smartphone users who are using popular Chinese-origin apps and mobile games on a daily basis, including TikTok, PUBG Mobile, Clash of Kings, etc. The Indian government claimed that such apps seriously pose a formidable threat to user privacy, and at a higher level, that’s all about national security and sovereignty.

Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB) is included in the government's blacklist as well.

For your information, Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB) is included in the list as well, but MLBB’s developer Moonton has started to try its best to calm down Indian players. The Shanghai-based company Moonton is completely Chinese by any means, and so is MLBB.

In specific, Moonton stated that they’re staying in touch with the Indian government, presumably in quest of restoring services in the country. Moonton also cited that ensuring the security and privacy of users is the first priority the company always keeps an eye out for.

A statement from the Indian government.

There’s no word on when the game will come back, but all you need to do now is to wait for further information from authorities. To your surprise, the game still takes place on the App Store or Play Store at the time of writing like most of the other apps that recently come under fire. It might take Apple and Google some time to take down these apps in India.

As one of the most-downloaded games on Google’s Play Store, Mobile Legends: Bang Bang has established a strong foothold in the Indian market thanks to a growing community for players alongside several local tournaments for real competitions.
