Free Fire’s Facebook account acknowledged the login issues in a post and said they were being investigated. Dot Esports has reached out to Garena and Sea, Garena’s parent company, for comment.
Fans have been speculating if this could be due to a ban on the game in India. India’s ministry of electronics and IT had previously banned several applications due to purported data privacy reasons in 2020. It’s unclear if Free Fire is also facing similar scrutiny by the government body. When the apps were banned in 2020, a public statement was released by the ministry. Even then, the apps were available for some time on the application stores before being pulled down. The ministry hasn’t made such a statement today, however.
Basically, these are all about the updates so far. There will be more updates coming your way. Until then, stay connected for further updates.
