Xiaomi recently issued a statement regarding some of these band apps such as, TikTok Lite, Helo Lite, SHAREit Lite, etc; and other citations.
Xiaomi also stated that none of the banned apps are accessible on any of their devices any longer. The company also stated that they were working on a new version of MIUI.
This new version would exclude any of these band Apps mentioned by the Indian government on its interface.
So What’s New?
In recent chats with company executives, the company has stated that MIUI would be rolled out for all Xiaomi devices which would be sold in India, in a phased manner in the coming weeks.
For Xiaomi enthusiasts who are worried about software compliance policies, you have nothing to worry about.
The company has promised to continually comply with all data privacy and security policies which the Indian government has stated.
Xiaomi also stated that all of their Indian customers’ personal information is stored in local servers and is not shared with anyone outside of India.
Aside from the statement concerning compliance with all security policies, the company also spoke about their issue with Clean Master.
Although, Xiaomi smartphones are not released with the Clean Master App pre-installed, the company, however, uses some adaptations of the App for its own internally developed Cleaner App.
Yup! Clean Master was one of the several Apps banned by the Indian government earlier this year.
As stated earlier with reiterations, Xiaomi MIUI will be complying with all Indian security and data policies by removing all definitions sourced from the Clean Master App.
The company has been reported to release new updates of the MIUI very soon.
For individuals who already have the older versions of Redmi smartphones in India, you don’t have to worry.
Since Xiaomi lets you manually update the Cleaner App from the System Apps updater, you can remove these adaptations.
