Xiaomi responds to privacy concerns that MIUI does not Secretly upload photos & text messages
Xiaomi Global VP Hugo Barra just wrote on Google+ that MIUI, the custom version of Android used by Xiaomi in its devices, does not secretly upload photos and text messages.
Xiaomi Global VP Hugo Barra said -
Xiaomi claims that the original article about the spyware claims severely misinterpreted a discussion thread asking about the Redmi Note’s communication with a server in China. They emphasized that there is nothing shady happening at Xiaomi and users need not worry. Xiaomi further explained that MIUI requests public data from Xiaomi servers from time to time but none of this infringes on user privacy and is totally non-personal in nature.
