Wow. The Chinese are really taking things to the next level. Invasion of privacy, definitely but also pretty smart.

That is... quite a take. But, it’s also one of the main reasons ZTE was banned from the American market for a time - I guess it’s a legitimate concern.

Moral of the story: don’t talk about Top Secret information, or your personally identifiable information, in public.

Honestly this take feels like fearmongering.

I’m not sure how much is fearmongering and how much is systemic; regardless, it’s way beyond the scope of our forums.

Locked, and let us know if there’s something that’s germane to the topic.
