After the stolen data disaster, Xiaomi has not learned. Even after updates are installed, they still covertly copy China your data.
A week ago Hugo Barras as much as called it a non issue and then said it had to do with the Xiaomi cloud. This was untrue, however.
Apparently Xiami has learned nothing as they issued a patch for the problem but still snatch your data.
Kenny Li, the owner of a Xiaomi smartphone in Hong Kong, found the company’s software update will not stop his phone from automatically sending information to a server in Beijing, reports Taiwanese technology news website TechNews.
Xiaomi has released an over-the-air program purported to allow its users to close the function that sends their information to the server. However, Li found multiple services on his phone still transmit data to an IP address in Beijing after he updated the phone and reset it according to Xiaomi’s instructions.
The internet messaging function started again even after being shut down after downloading the program, Li found.
