Got a cheap Chinese phone? Some one might be listening in.

Found 25th Nov 2016
People who have been complaining about Chinese phones having spyware have been proven right. Researchers have found embedded software which sends user data back to Chinese servers.

Reported last week.

I had this problem a year ago.

In the end I got nowhere in resolving it.

If you take a chance on a Chinese phone, always run several lots of anti virus on it when you first get it, and periodically, to check if it's clean.

It's hardly news. Expensive Chinese made phones have been doing this for nearly 10 years!

I'm on the hunt for a new phone and when I read about this maybe I over reacted. I wouldn't be surprised if Google and Apple were doing the same.

Since they are nearly all made in China, I suspect you are correct.

Of course they are.

​I think you're right, apparently Apple are launching a new game called iSpy, it's much better than the original game we all know and played when we were kids!

Exactly. Welcome to 1984.

BLU mobile phones have supposedly have spyware installed on them and they are sold on Amazon I wouldn't buy one. androidpolice.com/201…us/

So the Chinese will swamp the UK with cheap lego Porsche gt3's and a cheap new brand of 4k TV and while we're all arguing on HUKD their army will be able to enter the country without being noticed....

Or am I the only one who doesn't share secrets of national importance on their cheap Chinese phone?
