Battlegrounds Mobile India (PUBG Mobile) to have better data security and storage

A sense of joy has been sparked in the Indian PUBG Mobile community ever since the announcement regarding the region-specific version, called Battlegrounds Mobile India, was made. Their wait is finally over, thanks to the eventual return of the battle royale title in the country.

PUBG Mobile was on the list of 118 apps banned by the MeitY, citing security and privacy reasons, in September 2020. As a result, Krafton has mentioned that Battlegrounds Mobile India would have better data security and storage, with players’ privacy being their primary concern.

“Your personal information will be stored and processed on servers located in India and Singapore. However, we may transfer your data to other countries and/or regions to operate the game service and/or to meet legal requirements.

Therefore, personal information will be stored on servers present in India and Singapore.
