What is the Reason Behind Banning the Free Fire?

Do you know that Free Fire is owned by a Singapore-based company? Still, it got banned because of the following two reasons:

  • Free Fire, as stated by the government, falls under the ‘security threat’ category. It poses a safety threat and privacy issues to users and can track several sensitive information of its players.
  • The free fire was sued by Krafton, the former company of PUBG because Free Fire was copying the elements of the Game PUBG

Yes! With several proofs, Kraftson accused and showed how Free Fire contains many facets copied from their game. It includes a choice of Armor, weapons, location, materials, objects, etc., as written in the lawsuit. 

Is There any Substitute for Garena Free Fire for Its Players?


The players of this game need not be worried as the government has only banned the lite version of the game. The boosted Free Fire Max is still on the Google Play Store, which includes even better infographics and sound qualities.
