Krafton Finally Admits You Can Transfer PUBG Mobile Data to Battlegrounds Mobile India
Krafton has finally confirmed that PUBG Mobile players will be able to transfer their data to Battlegrounds Mobile India. The feature, first revealed by unofficial spokesperson (and now rumoured to be Godlike Esports’ Battlegrounds Mobile India coach and content creator) Abhijeet Andhare aka Ghatak wasn’t confirmed by Krafton at the time. Many, us included, had our doubts that this would be allowed given the data sharing policies regarding apps made in China, which PUBG Mobile is. Nonetheless, a report from Indian Express prior to Battleground Mobile India launching suggested that this could indeed be the case. We reached out to Krafton India boss Aneesh Aravind at the time and received no comment.
According to a post by Krafton on Facebook, the company is “providing data transfer service in order to safely secure the data of fans from India.”

PUBG Mobile to Battlegrounds Mobile India Data Transfer End Date
Krafton claims that if you “wish to transfer their data, please do so before July 6th”. Odd since the company’s support page lists December 31, 2021 as the last date.
The July 6 end date is likely due to concerns on data sharing with China.
Last weekend IGN India reported that Krafton’s Battlegrounds Mobile India game was sharing data with China Mobile Communications Corporation, a state-owned conglomerate.
Following this, the Chairperson of the Parliamentary Committee on India’s Data Protection Bill and BJP Member of Parliament, Meenakshi Lekhi has tweeted asking the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) “to look into it”.
A recent update to the game appears to have fixed most of these issues and Krafton finally admitted it to these problems which is a welcome move considering the company is anything but transparent, to the point of refusing to condemn racism in the Battlegrounds Mobile India community by its content creators.
