For pre-registered Android users, Krafton has released the Battlegrounds Mobile India beta. In India, the game has yet to be given an official release date. In the coming days, Krafton is expected to announce the BGMI iOS and Android release date. While we wait for that, a new report from the PUBG Mobile developer may cause some controversy. Data from the BGMI is being sent to servers in Beijing, China, according to a new report. According to a report by IGN India, the data is sent to Tencent’s Proxima Beta in Hong Kong, as well as Microsoft Azure servers in the United States, Mumbai, and Moscow.
The publication claims to have double-checked the information from its sources using a data packet sniffer app. One of the servers was discovered to be run by China Mobile Communications Corporation in Beijing. Other Tencent servers that have been discovered include QCloud and AntiCheat Expert.
The user’s device data was also included in the data sent to China. Players’ personal information will be stored and processed in Indian servers, according to Krafton’s new Battlegrounds Mobile India terms of service. However, the new terms state that the company may “transfer your data to other countries” to comply with “legal requirements.”
Due to data security concerns, PUBG Mobile was banned in India last year. At the time, Krafton stated that it is working closely with the Indian government to ensure compliance with local laws. It also revealed that it had severed ties with Tencent in India to relaunch the game. Krafton might be concerned about the new report. This comes after several Indian politicians called for a ban on the PUBG Mobile alternative. The Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) recently sent a letter to the Minister of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) claiming that the BGMI poses a threat to Indian security.
