German cybersecurity agency finds no censorship in Xiaomi mobile phones

Lithuania’s action led to the German BSI’s investigation which lasted several months.

“As a result, the BSI was unable to identify any anomalies that would require further investigation or further action,” the spokesperson said.

In a statement at the time, a Xiaomi spokesperson told Newshub that its devices “do not censor communications to or from its users.”

“Xiaomi has never and will never restrict or block our smartphone users’ personal behaviors, such as searching, calling, web browsing, or use of third-party communications software,” the statement said.

“Xiaomi fully respects and protects the legal rights of all users.”

There have been doubts about the use of Chinese technology in countries around the world in recent years, including New Zealand.

In 2018, Spark wanted to use Huawei gear as part of its 5G network, but the Government Communications Security Bureau (GCSB) said there would be security risks if it did.

The UK government had previously banned the same company’s technology, and the US announced in September that it would replace Huawei’s devices in its networks.

Huawei, the other companies targeted and the Chinese government have all denied the charges and condemned the actions taken by Western governments against them.
