25 réflexions au sujet de “HMD admet le Nokia 7 Plus envoyait des données à caractère personnel vers la Chine”

  1. It could be a conspiracy or a mistake. Regardless, it’s great that someone found out about it, and HMD should face legal punishments if they breached the GDPR.

  2. im a little worried people assume their smartphones arnt sending data to unknown people all the time. the modren spartmphone is a spys wet dream. you bet you ass every state wants data from it.

  3. > « Our device activation client meant for another country was mistakenly included in the software package of a single batch of Nokia 7 Plus. »

    Cool story, bro!

  4. Can I just put this out there as a semi related comment? My friend’s Nokia 6.1 Plus has been an absolute nightmare of a phone from a reliability standpoint. There’s been complete phone freezes, touch not registering at edges, mic not working until restart, unbearable touch latency, camera not working until restart, and now the USB C port itself is coming loose causing the phone to not charge at all unless the cable is put pressure on at a certain angle (has tried multiple cables and chargers). Atleast it’s an android one phone and China doesn’t spy on you (I hope) but that didn’t stop the software and build quality from being craptastic. I finally convinced him to get a new phone but man getting in touch with him was annoying.

  5. > The company identifies the information sent as « activation data » and then says that « no person could have been identified based on this data. » HMD’s claim here is a bit strange, considering the entire point of « activation data » is to identify someone so they can be billed for cellular access.

    While this particular server belonged to China Telecom and did seem to serve this purpose, this is not the general purpose of *device* « activation data. »

    Device « Activation data » primarily feeds back to a device maker the location in which a given device was turned on and connected to the Internet for the first time so they can match that against where the device was *intended* to be sold. It is for measuring and controlling distribution and identifying where + to what extent the vendor’s supply chain has been compromised by grey market traders. This is different from *SIM* activation data.

    HMD clearly screwed up here and need to take more care to vett the software running on their devices if they want to avoid tarnishing the Nokia brand. Especially given this happened repeatedly for months instead of once on first boot. But every device from every manufacturer tells that manufacturer when and where it has been turned on for the first time.

  6. There isn’t an electronics company out there today that isn’t sending or collecting our personal information and giving/selling it to someone else.
