Forbes has published an article claiming that Xiaomi tracks private browsing and uploads the data to servers hosted by Alibaba.
Xiaomi’s browser does not only record search engine queries; the phone records screen swipes, folders the user browsers, settings page, and almost every other thing. Xiaomi claims that the transmitted data was in encrypted form but Forbes says:
„My main concern for privacy is that the data sent to their servers can be very easily correlated with a specific user.“
This allows individual tracking.
