The government of this country has asked to throw away Chinese smartphones. Know why the government had to say this after all. Read the full report.
The discussion started once again regarding Made in China smartphones. The government of Lithuania has asked its citizens to throw away Chinese smartphones. Not only this but it has also been said from the government that does not buy Chinese phones in the future.
The government has also highlighted the names of two smartphone makers for this. It has asked Xiaomi and Huawei smartphones to be thrown away. The reason behind this is the built-in censorship of the phone. Due to this, some terms are blocked on the phone.
Let us also tell you that Lithuania has made this allegation at a new time when the relationship between the two countries is not good. These allegations on Chinese smartphones have been made in a new report by the National Cyber Security Center of the Ministry of Defense of Lithuania.
It has been told in the report that the system app automatically censors 449 terms in Xiaomi phones. It includes words like Free Tibet, Long Leave Taiwan Independence, Democracy Movement. According to Lithuania Cyber Security, censorship capability was found in Xiaomi’s flagship phone Mi 10T 5G in Europe.
The agency said that it was turned off for this European Union region but it can be turned on remotely anytime. According to the report of the news agency Reuters, Deputy Minister of Defense Margiris Abukevicius appealed to the people not to buy new Chinese phones. Apart from this, remove the old phone as soon as possible.
When our colleague India Today Tech talked to Xiaomi in this matter, the company told that its device does not have any kind of censorship software. It respects and protects the legal rights of the users.
According to the National Cyber Center Lithuania, another flaw was also found in Chinese smartphones. Regarding Xiaomi, it was said that the phone was sending encrypted phone usage data to a server in Singapore.
Apart from this, a flaw was also found in the Huawei P40 5G. However, OnePlus was not found guilty in this investigation. Huawei also denied these allegations in a conversation with BNS News Wire.
