Krafton Inc. has announced that it will be temporarily halting data transfer services in Battlegrounds Mobile India. The service is designed to help players transfer their old game data from PUBG Mobile and bring it over to the new game. Now, the developer states that these services will be temporarily put on hold after July 6 and it is not yet known what it will resume. So those players who want to transfer their old data to Battlegrounds Mobile India should do so before July 6.

To recall, Battlegrounds Mobile India came under scrutiny a few weeks ago when it was discovered that the game was transferring data to servers located in China. According to the report, the game was sending and receiving data from China Mobile Communications servers and Tencent servers located in China. 

Krafton Inc. and since acknowledged that Battlegrounds Mobile India uses “third-party solutions to provide unique game features.” As such, some data was sent to third parties as part of using these solutions. It claims that the game’s privacy policy fully disclosed that the app may transfer some data. It further added that no data was shared in violation of the policy. It also noted that the data that is shared with third parties is only to enable certain game features. It says that it will “continue to monitor and protect any data being transferred to unexpected and restricted IP addresses prior to the official launch.”

Account transfer was a way for Battlegrounds Mobile India players to regain access to their old PUBG Mobile game data. This is especially important for those players who have spent a considerable amount of money on the game. This not only let players reuse any outfits or items they had unlocked, but also added any remaining UC that they might have had in their old accounts. To know how to transfer accounts, click here.
