Among the increasing tensions between India and China, the government decided to ban 59 Chinese apps in order to send a message to them and to ‘counter the threat posed by these applications to the country’s sovereignty and security’. The list includes some mostly used apps like TikTok and Shein. If you can’t get over the ban, here are some alternative options that you can try:

  •  Instead of UC Browser: you can use Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge, Jio Browser and Opera.

  • Instead of shopping apps such as Shein, Club Factory, and ROMW, you can use – Myntra, Pricee, Flipkart, LimeRoad and Amazon. 

  •  Instead of Camscanner, which can scan documents via your phone, you can use – Microsoft Lens, Adobe Scan, Photo Scan and TapScanner
