Xiaomi released a Twitter statement clarifying on its mobile phones the situation of banned Chinese apps. It says that none of the Indian government’s blocks are on Xiaomi apps, and 100% of the Indian user information remains in the country. It also claims that it does not use the now discontinued Clean Master app in its own MIUI Cleaner app.

This comes after numerous Chinese apps such as Mi Browser and My Community app in India have been banned due to China ‘s move to combat the dominance of China in India’s Internet services market.

The Chinese company wishes to explain the situation with data privacy and security issues about some banned applications to its community, as tweeted on Xiaomi’s Mi India Twitter account.

It says that Xiaomi phones can not access any of the banned applications in India, and the company is working on an MIUI version that does not preinstall any of these banned apps. This latest edition is to be released slowly in the coming weeks.

To fix the issue of the clean master app, Xiaomi says that its MIUI Cleaner app uses only “industry concepts necessary for its cleaner app’s functioning.” This says ‘Clean Master’ is a generic name for the industry, and Xiaomi does not use the banned Clean Master software for its operating system.

In addition, the MIUI Cleaner app has been updated and industry definitions have been removed. Users can not manually update the app to their Xiaomi phones by heading to the update system apps in Settings if the app has not been updated automatically.

The article also says that all Indian user data have been stored on local servers since2018, and none of them has been shared with servers or anyone else outside of the world. Xiaomi claims the modified software comes with all upcoming smartphones, which means that it doesn’t contain any of the banned devices.

Recently, the Indian government has been suggesting that the China device prohibition would extend to avoid further Xiaomi and Baidu applications. The browser application owned by Xiaomi-My User-in India was also barred.
