1. Can we download BGMI after ban?

The simple answer: Yes!

Even though the game has been removed from Apple App Store and Google Play Store, you can still download the game using other methods.

2. Why has the Download Battlegrounds Mobile India been banned?

Why is Battlegrounds Mobile India downloading banned in India? Well, it was due to a government regulation that revolves around privacy and security.

  • According to officials, if BGMI wants to keep running in India, all of its servers should be present and operational in India.

However, this doesn’t stop the players from downloading and playing the game on their iOS and Android devices.

On Android, you can simply download the BGMI APK to play it on your device. If you’re on iOS, there’s a one-click method for you, too — which we will talk about in the incoming sections.
