Smartphone users and Xiaomi Redmi reported that the firmware MIUI 12 some applications behave strangely.
We are talking about automatic startup, unauthorized access to and reading of information on the smartphone without user permissions.
Users acknowledge that some programs installed on the smartphone independently, after which they are automatically launched as well.
So, for example, mobile training app You Academy about 10 minutes scans to the smartphone approximately 25,000 photos and files.
Popular Chinese apps like Meitu Xiuxiu, Pin Duoduo, National K Song, Sina Weibo and Honor of the King, also acting very odd.
Program Tencent TIM runs almost 7,000 times in an hour and tries to access the address book.
It should be noted that frequent start applications may artificially increase the number of visitors and application traffic to obtain about the value of active daily users.
In firmware MIUI 12 information about this activity is available to people who worry about permissions, these applications and their privacy.
In turn, the Deputy Director of the research Institute CCID under the Ministry of industry and information technology of China Lu Feng said that developers should strengthen the monitoring of the permits that require the application. In his opinion, if the application attempts to default to collect more data than necessary for work, such applications must be marked.
