China’s ‘Spy’ App?

Heard of UCBrowser? It’s a Chinese app used by an estimated 400 million young Indians. All the data is stored in China and it appears there’s nothing the Indian government can do about it. Heard of ByteDance? It’s a Chinese news aggregator which is coming to India. ByteDance is believed to be close to the Chinese government and in the process of aggregating and sending news, it is also reported to plant news items and opinions that the Chinese government wants to disseminate.
