Free Fire developers have added new anti-cheat systems in OB22 update to counter the hacking issues. These anti-cheat systems have been added to make the game fair for everyone. Hackers use modified APKs, scripts, and more to cheat in the game, which gives them an unfair advantage over other players.
A few days ago, the developers made an announcement that 89,600 accounts were banned permanently for cheating. However, this time, the number has increased to a massive 1.18 Million banned accounts.
