Indian alternatives to banned Chinese Apps Indian alternatives to banned Chinese Apps

India has banned more than 100 Chinese origin apps till date. As per the statement given by the Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology, "These measures have been undertaken since there is credible information that these apps are engaged in activities which are prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, security of state and public order."

Following this, the mood in the Indian IT sector is quite upbeat because of the opportunity that has arisen. The native developers support the ban and want users to move to apps developed by Indians for Indians. These app developers claim that Indian apps keep user data safe and secure within the country, unlike Chinese apps.

Many software companies are quickly coming out with apps that may shorten the void thus created. Indian users are also steadily moving to Indian apps promoting 'Vocal to Local' initiative.

Let's take a look at some Indian apps worth a mention that are taking this challenge head-on.

1. CamScanner: ScanUp
2. Tik Tok: Chingari, Roposo, Josh
3. SHAREit / XENDER / ES FILE EXPLORER: Shareall, Z Share
4. UC Browser/ CM Browser / APUS Browser: Bharat Browser
5. Baidu Map: MapmyIndia Move

Some excellent Indian apps:

1. Anti virus: K7 Total Security
2. News Feed: InShorts, dailyhunt
3. Instant Messaging: Hike
4. App Security: AppLock
5. Multiplayer Game: Ludo King
6. To-do reminder: Friday
