PUBG Mobile Banned, But Still Working in India?
PUBG Mobile, along with 117 other apps, has been removed from the Play Store. However, you can still play the game until the government blocks the server.
Such bans might take some time to impose. If PUBG Corps doesn’t shut down the server access for the Indian region, users can play the game after the ban without using a VPN.
As of now, there’s no information on when PUBG Mobile Servers are going off.
Can I Use VPN To Play PUBG Mobile? (After Ban)
As of now, PUBG Mobile can be played using a VPN. However, the Indian government is likely to enforce a blanket ban on the game, similar to what happened with the TikTok. This means that PUBG Mobile will not work even after using a VPN.
Even if PUBG works via a VPN, there’s another problem to worry about. VPNs were known to trigger a third party application ban. PUBG Mobile often detects ‘VPN Connection’ as ‘Hack’, leading to a permanent or a temporary account ban.
We have seen players getting their PUBG Mobile ID Banned for as long as ten years just for using the VPN services.
Best VPNs for PUBG Mobile (Android)
Anyways, if you still want to try PUBG Mobile with a VPN, then you need to use VPN apps like Hotspot Shield, NordVPN, Express VPN, etc. All of these VPNs were available for Android.
