Last Friday, the Chinese government also launched a network security review on Didi Chuxing, during which new users were stopped from registering. According to the announcement, the “Didi Chuxing” App owned by the company has serious problems in collecting and using personal information in violation of laws and regulations, and notified app stores to remove it. Didi expects that this will adversely affect its revenue in the Chinese market.

Affected by the news, Meituan fell by more than 5% today, the lowest since June 17th. Tencent fell 2%.
