Garena Free Fire, AppLock Available for Download via Samsung’s Galaxy Store in India Despite Ban

The battle royale game has Garena Free Fire, which was among the mobile apps and games banned by the government on Monday, and is still available in India through Samsung’s Galaxy Store. In addition to Free Fire, DoMobile’s AppLock is accessible without restrictions through the Samsung store. The IT ministry’s prohibition led to the immediate removal of Free Fire, AppLock, and 52 other apps from Google Play and Apple’s App Store in the country.

Garena Free Fire is available for download through the Galaxy Store, which comes preloaded on Samsung devices, as noted by 91Mobiles.

Gadgets 360 has reached out to Samsung for a comment on the matter and will update this article when the company responds.

Despite the fact that the government has prohibited the 54 more apps and games due to “security dangers,” most users who have them installed on their smartphones can still use them.

This is in contrast to the previous round of bans, which required game makers to totally shut down their servers. At the time, telecom operators and Internet service providers (ISPs) were also told to put in place network access restrictions to prevent customers from accessing services included in the banned apps and games.

According to sources acquainted with the situation, telcos and ISPs were not notified that any such limitations would be implemented this time.

Garena in a brief statement on the matter said that it is working to address the situation and apologized to its users for any inconvenience. Do Samsung’s Galaxy S22 and Tab S8 series have any Android competition? We discuss this on Orbital, the Gadgets 360 podcast. Orbital is available on Spotify, Gaana, JioSaavn, Google Podcasts, Apple Podcasts, Amazon Music and wherever you get your podcasts.
