New Delhi: After mobile phones, the Centre is now looking into mobile internet browser UC Browser for alleged leak of mobile data of Indian users and may be banned in the country if found guilty.

“There have been complaints against UC Browser that it sends mobile data of its users in India to server in China. There are complaints that even if an user has uninstalled it or cleaned browsing data, the browser retains control of DNS of user’s device,” the government officials said. 

 

According to sources, The Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC), Hyderabad is doing technical investigation into the allegation made in a University of Toronto report against UC browser on vulnerabilities of its users to surveillance.  

The app is part of Alibaba’s mobile business.
