How to play Mobile Legends in India even after the ban

After the announcement of 59 Chinese app ban, Mobile legends Bang Bang players were into deep sorrow since it is one of the two games that got ban in India. And today from 2 PM IST, the game servers are not accessible for the players. So those players who have invested a lot of time and money, Mobile Legends ban is certainly a big blow for them. But, here in this article, we’ll talk about how you can still play Mobile Legends in India even after the ban is still there.

Play Mobile Legends in India even after the ban without any trouble

The process is quite simple. And you can play Mobile Legends without any issue. Just follow the steps mentioned below.

1. Download the Mobile Legends app from anywhere

Since the game is not available in Indian Google Play or App Store anymore. You need to download the APK file from the internet or any 3rd party stores. We recommend using the TapTap. However, if you already have the game installed then you don’t need to worry about this step.

2. Download a VPN

Once you are done downloading and installing Mobile Legends, its time to download a VPN app. If you simply try to launch the game without a VPN, you’ll get a notice “Mobile Legends is not available in your region”. So you must get a VPN to run the game. You can download any VPN of your choice.

3. Connect to any server and start Mobile Legends

Now, start the VPN first and connect to any server other than India. After that you can start Mobile Legends and you’ll see the game is loading fine.

4. Turn-off the VPN after the game loads successfully

Once you are inside the game, now turn off the VPN. With the VPN on, you’ll face ping issues. The game will be unplayable if you do not turn off the VPN. After you turn off the VPN, the game will work as usual. Now you can play Mobile Legends in India even after the ban!

Here is proof (notice the time and date) where we have played with 2 other friends and it worked like a charm! I hope you can enjoy playing Mobile Legends now.

Play Mobile Legends in India without any issues!

Try it at your own risk

Please remember that, using a VPN to play games is never safe. You should be well aware of what you are doing. There is always a chance that Moonton may ban your account. So, while you can surely enjoy playing Mobile Legends by avoiding the ban, you should be cautious about it.

It’s not the apps but it’s the people there and there Is nothing to do with their apps… What mindset you are carrying…!

When you were playing the game, u never thought or knew that was chinese I guess. But as soon as you got to know it’s banned and it’s chinese, u r like “omg that bc China. Don’t play games from china.” Etc. It’s your mindset that needs to be changed. Why doesn’t everyone see and behave others equally? Why is this happening? Because of some people’s ghatiya mind set. And others, stop insulting others. Everyone is equal, remember

Best comment my friend.
They are always negative thinker
And you are always thinking positive
Thats the difference between you and other


Wats the point, it’s like someone has invaded your home and you block them on facebook




So we should play ludo to be Indian Lamao

Sonam Gyatso

Before being an indian or Chinese were all humans so pls stop being racist…and unlike u there are people including me who have spent a lot of money in this game so this is a big blow to them


Which VPN did you use?

Timsina Gaurav

Now no need vpn bro u can play further only nice internet connection needed


U should not encourage such illegal acts. U thought we don’t know to play this way. It was banned in India due to a reason.
By writing this article u r showing that u have Anti-Indian sentiments.
No GAME is bigger than INDIA. We will play this on when it is legally available.


Well said bro


You are right bro😫😫😫, I really miss my mlbb

Send me ur account bro


Banning 59 apps may cause 6 Billion Dollar loss to China but it will not make such a considerable difference for a 15 Trillion Dollar economy. Our government has done this to give them a statement. I believe it was the bigger apps like TicTok which were meant to be targeted.
Nobody knows what politics is behind this not even you Tousif.
All I want to say is If this decision was taken in interest of my country, I will stand by it.


I agree with you and Bihar election is coming soon…

I dont think you ever thought about INDIA except the day of 15th August and Republic Day. Have you? Know the facts first

I do not wish to comment anything on what you have said. Shame!!!

Sneha Manna

Why ML is banned cuz India thinks that it steals our data but you see in play store pubg and many other games made by tencent people play.Tencent is a biggest Chinese game company then why are those games not getting banned. They also ascess our documents and steal our data so why mobile legend only which is made by moonton ? This not fair .


Sneha, before u comment get ur facts right. Pubg was not made in China…lol


Yeah but dont you think tencent owns pubg and recently got banned aswell?
the only person without logic is you… 🙂


Using vpn is not illegal. Its more of an alternative I would say. Facts before personal opinion. LMAO


Tousif, please do also tell our gamers that MLBB may or may not steal our data but these private VPN is definitely a threat not only for the nation but also for our peraonal data.


What about Whatsapp??
Dont they steal our data.
What about facebook??
Mark openly said that they record ur data.

These may not be Chinese apps, so they wont ban it.
they say they FEAR and are CONCERNED about our privacy.
Oh thats total BULLSHIT.

The Indian Govt. is RACIST.

See bro u may noticed that all chinese games and apps are not totally banned in india…do you know why….I am not so sure but my guts say that its all part of the game played by our govt. and most importantly reliance jio…..Reliance jio’s shares increased by 70 percent because of those banned apps and they are going to monopolize our IT sectors…I am not sure about the result in future but try to see through all prespective. But ultimately its benefits our own nation but still i want my country to give tough comeptition in every field instead… Read more »

UFO, Hotspot Shield, Solo VPN doesn’t work..
I tried it many times but it says the same.
The game is banned in your country or region
Iam a beta tester of Mobile Legends.
I was playing before the game is released globally
I lost all my happy moments.

Ashini okram

Hii can i ask something is using vpn illegal in india and sometimes it is said that indian gov. Will arrest us


Please create a game like mobile legend copy from china….
No literacy of animation creation or 3d playable creator in india,,
If china can make pubg ,,mobilelegend,,.etc etc or lol.. dota etc etc why cant india make a good game


Game like chotta bheem returns?


Is there a way to buy diamonds in-game? I have not been able to do it after the ban. If you can help with that it would be greatly appreciated.


Man I really wanted that Badang skin had money saved up for it too.


Maybe Moonton failed to pay taxes top the indian govt. 😀


i want to play in pc but it is ban

Darth Vader

But how do I update the game? Should I re-download the apk ?


As indian we should respect d court on app benediction but as a future generation indian government should consider about the coming trend and big jump in market of gaming industry( its not about data theft or privacy anymore rather you should think about the facilities you are getting by providing user report..)
