This is a last bid attempt from the app to avoid coming under the government’s scrutiny. PUBG has an India-only server based in India for the users here. It is also reported to have servers based in Singapore, Hong Kong, and the US.

Currently, the privacy policy of PUBG lets it share the date of the users with third parties for better user experience such as cloud services for data backup, support ticketing, and fraud detection.

Moreover, the privacy policy also states that the support, engineering, and other teams are located in its offices around the world including the People’s Republic of China, India, the US, and Hong Kong. They will have access to player information.

Data like open ID, IP address, device information like app version, OS version, Battery level, registration time, login time and more, will remain in India and will not be used by the third parties unnecessarily.

It is being said that government of India is considering a ban on 275 Chinese apps including PUBG. The popular video-sharing portal TikTok also got banned over data security concerns with 47 other Chinese apps. The government has cited that the suspected apps compromise the data of the users.
