Understand the method of espionage in easy words
A person associated with the case says that you use TikTok, Helo, UC Browser and Zoom for entertainment. But all these apps secretly store the location of your phone and all the applications and important information you use. In such a situation, all the Indians are using these apps, they keep everything with them. Experts say that it is mandatory for every Chinese company to share its data with the Chinese government. Chinese intelligence agencies and the Chinese military can formulate a strategy to attack the country with these data. This may have been happening in many cases but the Chinese government never officially confirms it.
