Popular Chinese apps and their alternatives


In recent years, Chinese companies have invested a lot in the Indian market. Most of the popular apps in India have a Chinese connection. Chinese apps are always blamed for collecting users Data and sending it to China. Recently, Mi Browser was accused of the same. UC browser was also removed from App Store for similar things. Most security researchers suggest staying away from Chinese apps because Chinese apps share data with Chinese authorities.

After the series of political and business incidents during Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, it has become clear how China is using this pandemic for business and political benefits. So, it has also become important to avoid Chinese products and give China an economic shock. Notable influencers in India have called to boycott Chinese products because China is now using its power to create more border disputes with all neighboring countries.

Now many people will argue on this and will ask you to throw your Chinese phone first. These people need to understand the fact that the phone has already been bought. Throwing it away won’t hurt China or any Chinese company. So, forget about the past and plan the future. Try to stop dependency on Chinese products. This thing cannot be done instantly. It will take time.

We have an option to ditch Chinese apps and software starting from today. It will take just a few minutes to uninstall and install the alternatives. In this article, I am listing popular Chinese apps and their alternatives. The alternative apps may or may not be from Indian developers. I will keep adding new items to this list with the time.
