Indian Army announces ban on 89 Android, iOS apps. 

Due to the rising security concerns, the Indian Army on Wednesday decided to ban 89 apps on both Android and iOS platforms. While these apps will still be available for the civilians, it is the Army personnel that won't be able to access them anymore. The Army personnel have been asked to delete their accounts from the 89 banned apps, which include Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, TikTok and more. 

This comes right after the tensions with Pakistan and China began to rise. The Army claims that the "all-weather" friends have been trying to trouble India at the LOC and LAC.
