Pubg mobile new changes User privacy policy for Indian users

PUBG Mobile, which is amongst the biggest mobile gaming apps around the world, has taken an initiative to change its privacy policy for India.

A new update was recently pushed out for its users in the country that includes a new notification confirming the same. The changes in privacy policy have been introduced to offer better transparency around how personal information is processed.

This announcement comes soon after a number of reports mentioned the game in the list of 275 apps which were rounded up after the Indian government banned 47 more Chinese apps which were basically Lite versions of the earlier banned apps.

Recently, the Indian government banned a total of 59 Chinese made apps including the popular TikTok video-sharing app, Vigo, Helo, and more. Recently, 47 more apps were banned with 275 apps rounded up for scrutiny. 

PUBG Mobile India has given a reason for the changes in the privacy policy on its official Discord channel. “To answer some questions regarding this, we update our user privacy policy from time to time to reflect our current privacy practices. These updates are intended to make the user privacy policy easier to understand and to give more transparency about how we process your personal information.”

PRIVACY POLICY CHANGES

PUBG Mobile has extensively explained what kind of data they have access to and why do they need it. While your social media or Google account is required to sign-into the game, users the company can automatically collect certain data from you when you use the Game Services, namely your open ID, IP address, device information (such as application version, battery level, WiFi strength, available space, network type, OS version, platform, carrier, country code, series ID, Android ID, MAC and IDFV), registration time, login time, and information regarding your use of the Game Services, such as date and time stamps of actions.

Coming to the changes, the new privacy policy clearly states that user data will remain on Indian servers. Users from India will have the ability to contact PUBG Mobile officials in case they want access or erasure of their personal data. This means that users will have full transparency and control over what is being shared with the game developers.

Notably, the company also says that the information can get shared with third-party services on the basis of no further disclosure.
