One of the best thing in the OnePlus devices is total bloatware free, and this, not only offer better storage and performance but also enables more privacy. However, now the company came under fire and it is said that a feature of OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T sends users data to the overseas server.
The flagship maker added an intelligent Cleanup feature to its pre-loaded File Manager app with the OxygenOS Open Beta 17 for the OnePlus 6 and OxygenOS Open Beta 9 for the OnePlus 6T devices in India. It is said that this feature sends the data of a user to Tencent, as the cleanup tool is developed by them.
The cleanup tool work similar to Google’s tool for its File Go application, the feature automatically cleans the unwanted media to give more storage space. However, now it is said that the privacy for File Manager clearly mentions that relevant data is sent to Tencent’s Singapore server.
Having said that, information like Android version, language, region, and Hardware model can be sent to the developer’s server but now the question is whether it is taking the information about cache details and app usage details. If so then it will be a problem for all the users as their sensitive data is at risk.
Till now, there is no word from the officials but we expect that the company will respond about the same. We know that the OnePlus software management team offers excellent service and gives maximum satisfaction to the users. So, let’s wait for a proper answer to this concern in a very short period of time. We recommend you to stay tuned with us for the latest updates at your fingertips.
