Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) which is a rebranded version of PUBG Mobile has gained a lot of attraction in less time. With that, it has also attracted various health issues. Games like BGMI and Call of Duty have become a source of gaming and mobile addiction among teenagers in India. The game developers have come up with a solution to deal with this problem.

For underage players, the franchise has introduced a new Game Responsibly campaign. Earlier, the game had added green blood and warnings as a part of the simulation to the game. The new and updated privacy policy of the game says that all kids under the age of 18 need to take the consent of their parents before playing the game. 

Under the Game Responsibly campaign, Krafton will release short videos that will motivate the players to stop playing BGMI at regular intervals. The campaign will also shed light on the parental control features, which authorise parents to keep a check on the time spent by minors on the game. Kids below the age of 18 years would have to give their parents' number to play the BGMI. The registered number will get an OTP which will work as a key to play BGMI.
