Recently we have seen that the Indian government has banned 59 Chinese apps. And the reason for that is security of state and public order
What's going wrong?
European Union has a perfect regulatory law called GDPR(General Data Protection Regulation) this law protects users privacy and it also regulates the data transfer between European Union countries to outer countries, they check the data transfer and regulates if personal data is transferred to other countries, they also have a strong law that makes companies bound to privacy regulations and protects the privacy of public.
But when you see the bigger picture in play store many app developers c develop an app and upload it when it becomes a huge success when it comes to limelight the government is verifying the app activity and regulating it if it senses anything fishy.
But think about unpopular apps that have lesser user base but collecting user data, In any route, the privacy of a user is at risk
If the Indian government makes a strong law against user privacy and data storage, then the developer will think twice before making any such mistake like collecting user’s data without their consent. It also gives the government an authority to punish such companies or developers and stops dark activities.
This also gives users a protection layer, so that the non-technical people/general public can use the internet safely.
