As you might know, the Indian government took an anonymous decision to ban 59 Chinese applications. These apps are suspicious of leaking user data to their Chinese roots. One of those apps is ShareIt, which was the primary sharing app for most of us to send images, apps, videos, and other types of data.

But now we need an alternative to that. Here, we came up with the top 5 even better apps than ShareIt you can use to send and receive files more securely.

Why is it important to get rid of ShareIt?

Due to the recent tensions on the border, India has to be alarmed by any kind of threat from China. So the Indian government implemented a ban on 59 Chinese apps that could leak fragile data and harm the digital integrity of the country.

As per the 2017 National Intelligence Law and the 2014 Counter-Espionage Law in china, Chinese companies must disclose users’ data whenever the Chinese government asks for that. It’s a threat to all the other countries as there are popular apps like TikTok, ShareIt, Likee, etc. are quite popular among people.

ShareIt may collect private information from your device and leak it to the Chinese officials anytime. So stop using it anymore and pick one from the list of best ShareIt alternatives that are safe to use.
