Xiaomi’s HyperOS: Detecting and Alerting Against Pornographic Apps

Xiaomi’s HyperOS system has been the subject of controversy following allegations that it can intercept and notify authorities about the existence of pornographic apps.

The argument began when a TikTok user uploaded a modified screenshot online. This fictitious picture claimed to be an update log for HyperOS, indicating that it could now automatically identify and report pornographic apps to 110.

This erroneous information led to a widespread dissemination of confusion and disinformation. Wang Hua, Xiaomi’s general manager of public relations, has taken decisive action to confront and halt the spread of misleading information.

In an address to the public, he expressed his worries about the ease with which gossip circulates in the current digital era, noting the transition from visual confirmation to the mass dissemination of false information, often based on a single Photoshopped image or photo.

Hua stressed that the myth persisted in spreading through other online groups and discussion boards even after the false information from its original publication on a social media site was removed. He disproved this by urging others to actively disseminate correct information online and by offering genuine screenshots for contrast.

The real HyperOS update logs, which had a wide variety of devices, amply demonstrated that the upgrade’s main goal was to enhance system security.

Xiaomi has the HyperOS operating system, which is designed to function effortlessly with a user’s digital devices, including smartphones, home appliances, and cars. It is compatible with numerous Xiaomi and Redmi devices.

The real report log for HyperOS across different models showed that the real update was focused on increasing the system security by adding the Google security patch ( 2023#11) for November 2023. This was a huge difference from what the altered image purported to show.
