After trying to create much hype as a swadeshi\u00a0answer to WhatsApp, Patanjali has withdrawn its messaging app Kimbho\u00a0within a day of the test run, said the company in a recent statement to ET.\r\n\r\n\u201cThe app will be launched with all technical matters fixed,\u201d added Patanjali spokesperson S K Tijarawala.\r\n\r\nKimbho app, which was launched on May 30 as part of a test run, has been designed on lines of WhatsApp. Kimbho\u00a0means \u2018Whats Up\u2019 in Sanskrit and its logo looks similar to the Facebook\u2019s messaging app.\r\n\r\nSoon after the launch, while many users faced an issue in downloading the app on Google app store, by the end of the day,\u00a0Kimbho\u00a0was\u00a0facing some serious data security breach allegations by none other than Robert Batiste, aka Elliot Alderson\u00a0on Twitter, who called it as a \u201csecurity disaster\u201d.\r\n\r\nHe tweeted: \u201c@KimbhoApp before trying to compete #WhatsApp, you can try to secure your app. It\u2019s possible to choose a security code between 0001 and 9999 and send it to the number of your choice #kimbhoApp.\u201d\r\n\r\nAnother tweet read: \u201cThis @KimbhoApp is a joke, next time before making press statements, hire competent developers\u2026 If it is not clear, for the moment don\u2019t install this app .#Kimbho #KimbhoApp\u201d.\r\n\r\nBut Patanjali spokesperson Tijarawala denied these allegations. As he said, \u201cOur app will come back again soon after we are absolutely sure of all technical issues, and we will beat WhatsApp. We will never sell private consumer data,\u201d he said.\r\n\r\nInc42 also later discovered a number of similar versions of the Kimbho app on Google Play store.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nBut Tijarawala already has an explanation for this to the media. \u201cKimbho was a one-day test run for learnings. We were only testing it for learnings and over 1.5 lakh people downloaded it. Our app is no longer available and Patanjali cannot take responsibility for various duplicate apps doing the rounds," he said.\r\n\r\n\u201cBig technology-based apps in India are being run by MNCs; Patanjali believes it is time there is a swadeshi app run and developed entirely by our own people,\u201d Tijarawala added.\r\n\r\nIndia\u2019s leading FMCG company Patanjali, with its swadeshi mantra, has been trying to explore different verticals since inception. After recently launching its own SIM (with BSNL), Baba Ramdev\u2019s company launched Kimbho with an aim to provide a swadeshi solution to the likes of WhatsApp, WeChat, and other foreign messaging platforms in India. However the attempt severely backfired. Patanjali has not specified any timeline to launch the next version of messaging app Kimbho yet.
