Charges against Lithuania millet mobile phone built-in review, millet on Wednesday (September 22) through a statement to Reuters, said the device “will not review the users send or receive communication”, said: “millet never, also won’t restrict or prevent smartphone users of any personal behavior, such as search, calls, communication software web browsing or using a third party.” He stressed that Xiaomi fully respects and protects the legal rights of all users.

The Lithuanian Defense Ministry’s Cyber Security Center said Thursday that Chinese smartphone Xiaomi’s flagship phone sold in Europe has built-in functions to detect and censor terms such as “free Tibet”, “Long live Taiwan independence” or “democracy movement”, and advised citizens not to use chinese-made phones or discard them if they possess them.
Functions in Xiaomi’s 10T 5G phone software have been turned off in the European Union, but can be turned on remotely at any time, the NCSC said in its report. Margiris Abukevicius, Lithuania’s deputy defence minister, said: “We advise against buying new Chinese phones and discarding those already bought as soon as possible.”

However, the Report by Lithuania’s National Network Center also said xiaomi phones were sending encrypted phone usage data to a server in Singapore. China’s Huawei P40 5G phones were also found to have security vulnerabilities, but phones from another Chinese manufacturer, OnePlus, did not, the report said.
Huawei’s Baltic representative told the Baltic Sea News Agency (BNS) that their phones do not send user data to the outside world. According to the report, the list of terms that could be censored in xiaomi’s system applications, including the preset Internet browser, currently includes 449 Chinese terms and is constantly being updated.
“This is important not only for Lithuania, but for all countries using Xiaomi devices,” the Lithuanian National Internet Center said in the report.
Relations between Lithuania and China have soured recently. Lithuania angered China in July by agreeing to let Taiwan open a representative office under its name, and in August recalled its ambassador, Diana Mickevičienė, as well as pressuring Lithuania on trade.
