OnePlus discredited: a program sends user datas to Servers China

OnePlus became discredited today due to the presence of a program on the OnePlus 3T where user data was sent to servers in China. The whole story, however, is less harmful than it seems at first glance.

Now and then OnePlus gets discredited. Often these ' trifle ' have an interface with privacy. For example, it recently appeared that some OnePlus devices collected more user data than strictly necessary. This was discovered by a programmer who was digging through the code of the OnePlus 2. In the end, this ended with a hiss: it turned out to be a temporary test in which OnePlus soon continued through the normal course of events.
Today it is again hit. A OnePlus 3T owner reports on the forum that he encountered a mysterious program in the OnePlus 3T source code. This process ensures that user data is sent to a Chinese server, namely that of the Alibaba group: known from the web shop empire.

OnePlus responds

This goes against the user conditions and is at least striking. Especially because China has a different idea of ​​Internet freedom. As a result, the internet is restricted in large parts of the country, and user data is strongly monitored. Following this, the website Android Police OnePlus decided to request a written response. They react by stating that the above program is only active in experimental software, also known as beta. Thus, the program is not present in the final version of the software. Moreover, the above process is specifically intended for the Chinese market and therefore works with the local software version: HydrogenOS. This is in contrast to OxygenOS, the global version of its software.

So again it seems to end with a hiss. OnePlus concludes his written response by stating that Chinese software should be regulated for government reasons. This again in contrast to the global software version.
