‘Kimbho’: swadeshi messaging app launched by Patanjali goes ‘missing’ from Play Store over security concerns

Yoga guru Baba Ramdev’s Patanjali on Wednesday launched a new swadeshi messaging application called ‘Kimbho’ to compete with WhatsApp. The tagline of the app says: ‘Ab Bharat Bolega (Now India will speak)’.

Patanjali has launched new swadeshi messaging application

However, the Kimbho app has disappeared from the Play Store citing security concern. Some security analysts have expressed concern about the application’s security status. Patanjali has not come up with any statement regarding the removal of App from the Play store. The messaging is said to be built on a platform called ‘Bolo’ and the Patanjali team has not even replaced the name ‘Bolo’ on most of the places in the App. Interestingly, the application is not taken down from the Apple App store.

The launch of Patanjali messaging application comes after Ramdev recently announced a tie-up with BSNL to provide employees of Patanjali with a special SIM card, featuring low-cost talk plans

The Swadeshi Samriddhi SIM comes at a cost of Rs 144, for which users can avail unlimited calls throughout the country, 2 GB data and send 100 SMS. Initially, this benefit is offered to only Patanjali employees and office bearers. After the complete rollout of the SIM cards, customers will get a 10 percent discount on Patanjali products.
