    An online poll conducted by News18 to gauge Indians' sentiment on China revealed that 89 percent people support the ban announced by the government on Chinese apps. This is the third poll conducted by News18 to understand the sentiment of Indians on China in the last 30 days.
    The poll was conducted across Network18's platforms including CNN-News18, News18 India, News18 Languages, CNBC-TV18, Moneycontrol, and Firstpost.
    Citing security and privacy concerns, the government earlier this week banned 59 Chinese applications including popular video-sharing app TikTok, file-sharing app SHAREit, UC Browser, messaging platform WeChat among others.
    The poll that was conducted between July 1 and July 2 showed that 87 percent of the respondents were in fact in support of an extension of the ban to other Chinese apps as well.
    Here are the highlights from the findings of the poll:
    • 89 percent Indians support the ban on Chinese apps.
    • 87 percent want the ban to be extended to other Chinese apps as well.
    • 78 percent believe that Chinese apps steal data/spy on users.
    • 57 percent say that even if the Chinese apps agree to comply with Indian regulations, the ban should not be lifted.
    • 77 percent say that they won't go back to using the banned Chinese apps even if the ban gets lifted.
    • 72 percent say that e-commerce companies should prominently display 'Made in China' labels for products originating from China.
    • 80 percent are in favour of a strict ban on using telecom equipment from companies such as Huawei and ZTE.
