As we know 59 Chinese apps including tiktok, uc browser, share it, Es file explorer, viva video, cam scanner. We will here talk about why should these apps keep banned and why you should never use them again. We even provide alternative with more features than these apps.
Why apps banned?
The government said the applications are engaged in activities “prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, defense of India, security of state and public order.” The ban has been imposed under Section 69A of the Information Technology Act read with relevant provisions of the Information Technology (Procedure and Safeguards for Blocking of Access of Information by Public) Rules 2009, it said. The government also cited complaints about data on Indian users being transferred abroad without authorization.
And its true, we will cover these with apps one by one. Like how share it, uc browse and others used your data.
1. Alternative of Cam Scanner is Adobe scan[appbox googleplay com.adobe.scan.android ] Adobe scan is really a better app. As we know Cam scanner is the most used apps to scan documents and even it is used in offices. Also cam scanner is also blocked earlier because of its trojan attacks. Which makes leak of user information. So you should never use this app.
Instead you can use Adobe scan because it is similar to cam scanner and a great alternative of it. Also there is no watermark in Adobe scan. So you should use this app.
2. Alternative of UC browser is Firefox[appbox googleplay org.mozilla.firefox ] Uc browser also came across of many data leaks and its really not good for you to install in. So you can use firefox which has great privacy features. Its a great alternative because of its features.
3. Alternative of share it is Snapdrop.net
Share it as we know very spammy and send inappropriate links. Because of its notification access it spams. So snapdrop is really a great alternative of it. Its a web based service and not an app. You can open this website in devices and start to send files.
