Privacy has always been a cause for concern regarding the various games that may be operated in India. That was the main reason why PUBG Mobile was banned in India because the game allegedly sent players’ personal data to Chinese servers, much to the chagrin of the official authorities. Therefore, Krafton who brought PUBG Mobile back to India in Battlegrounds Mobile India avatar is very cautious about user privacy.
Prior to launching Battlegrounds Mobile India to players in India, Krafton took all necessary measures to ensure that the game was not banned in India. It gives various announcements in which all information related to the storage of player data is vividly explained. Not only that, the officials also take care of the underage players by putting in place an authentic verification system. In a recent announcement, officials announced the following-
