Battlegrounds Mobile India was released early a few days ago, and soon after, another report regarding the game’s security surfaced. According to an IGN investigation, Indian customers’ data from Android cellphones appears to have been transferred to China. The data sent and received by the BGMI Indian app are originated from the China Mobile Communications server situated in Beijing.
Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) Users’ Data Is Being Sent To A Chinese Server. The Game is once again shrouded in mystery, with privacy concerns resurfacing. The Information and Technology Ministry only banned PUBG (Player’s Unknown Battlegrounds) and 117 other Chinese apps last year.

The data from Battlegrounds Mobile India( BGMI is delivered to China Mobile Communications in Beijing, Tencent’s Proxima Beta in Hong Kong, and Microsoft Azure servers in Mumbai, Moscow, and the United States, according to the IGN report.
Furthermore, to obtain these results, one does not need to play a game in the most recent BGMI launch. As it ramps up the game, BGMI also pings a Tencent server in Beijing. This is a significant report because Krafton INC previously indicated that the gamers’ personal information would be maintained on servers in India and Singapore. However, the game did add that it may transfer the data to other countries to meet legal requirements.
We anticipate official statements from Krafton on the subject. Several Indian politicians, as well as the Confederation of All India Traders, have recently asked for a ban on BGMI , alleging a threat to Indian citizens’ security.
