In Beijing City, China, September 3, 2021—IT Home, a tech blogger/website in Mainland China, has released an article regarding a number of Xiaomi users in the country who opt-in for MIUI 12.5 Enhanced Edition have said that Xiaomi is already recruiting users to try the MIUI Pure Mode, a feature that negates installation of malicious apps on a Xiaomi phone.
Also, IT Home said, “Xiaomi said that recently we have received many feedbacks about application installation issues. Android open source does bring a more open and free market, but it also makes risks more likely to appear and spread. Among the applications installed through the application package management component every day, 40% have never passed the security audit of Xiaomi, and 10% have ever been recognized as a risk application by Xiaomi security audit.”
However, the website also emphasizes that Xiaomi has always regarded users’ information security and privacy protection as the foundation of survival. We hereby introduce a pure mode to solve risky or unknown application installation problems. Wherein we agree since as of now, regardless of many data leaks going on in the tech world, no one pointed Xiaomi about data leaks. I guess Xiaomi’s principle about protecting our data is meant so seriously.
Introduction to MIUI Pure Mode
MIUI Pure Mode is a brand-new system installation mode, which can effectively prevent the installation of risks or unknown applications caused by mistakes, misoperations, and other behaviors, and protect your application installation security. This mode can be turned off at any time, and everyone can choose to turn on or off the mode. To us, it is somehow similar to Google’s Google Play Protect.
