Mi—owned by Beijing-based Xiaomi—offers the Mi Band 6 as a lower cost health and fitness tracker. It tracks what most fitness trackers track--heart rate, sleep, stress, steps, calories, menstrual cycles, and more. Should you trust it? Xiaomi, the parent company of Mi, was recently caught secretly collecting data on some users, so buyer beware.

O que pode acontecer se algo der errado?

Things got a little confusing for us while reviewing the Mi Band 6. The company that sells the Mi Band is Chinese tech giant Xiaomi. It seems the company that may make the device technology is Huami, which also makes the Amazfit fitness trackers. The privacy policy on the Mi website links to a Xiaomi privacy policy. When we spoke with representatives from Mi, they told us their Mi Band 6 had a device-specific privacy policy and shared a pdf with us of a privacy policy from Huami, one we couldn’t find anywhere publicly online. The company says users can only access the privacy policy once they've downloaded the app. Oh, and recently Huami changed its name to Zepp Health Corp. As we said, it’s all very confusing.

What we do know is, Xiaomi--the company behind the Mi Band-- came under fire in 2020 when researchers reportedly found they were secretly collecting users' data during private web browsing and phone use. According to the Xiaomi privacy policy, the company does not sell personal information to third parties. They say they may share personal information with Xiaomi affiliates and the Mi Ecosystem. They also share personal information with third parties for marketing purposes. According to the Huami privacy policy the representatives from Mi shared with us, they can also share personal information with Huami-affiliated companies and with third parties for advertising and other purposes.

All in all, it seems to us a lot of personal information may be shared with any number of affiliate companies in the Xiaomi, Mi, Huami ecosystem. And we found it very odd they provided us with a pdf of a privacy policy for the device that we were unable to find publicly available online. Consumers should be able to read a product's privacy policy before buying the product or downloading the app. What’s the worst that could happen? Well, this device collects a lot of personal information and we can’t exactly tell where all that personal information is going in the confusing world of privacy policies we reviewed. That’s not good for consumers at all.

Dicas para se proteger

Speaking to Forbes in early 2020, security researchers Gabriel Cirlig and Andrew Tierney claimed that Xiaomi’s mobile web browsers collect an inordinate amount of data even in incognito mode. This allegedly included all URLs and search queries made in the stock MIUI browser, Mi Browser Pro, and Mint Browser. Combined, these browsers have more than 15 million downloads on the Google Play Store.

Exclusive: Warning Over Chinese Mobile Giant Xiaomi Recording Millions Of People’s ‘Private’ Web And Phone Use
Thomas Brewster
“It’s a backdoor with phone functionality,” quips Gabi Cirlig about his new Xiaomi phone. He’s only half-joking. Cirlig is speaking with Forbes after discovering that his Redmi Note 8 smartphone was watching much of what he was doing on the phone. That data was then being sent to remote servers hosted by another Chinese tech giant, Alibaba, which were ostensibly rented by Xiaomi.
