Xiaomi Welcomes Findings of the German Office for Information Security

Xiaomi received a decision by which the German IT security watchdog proves it adheres to relevant EU data privacy and security laws. The ruling could prove important in a fight with Lithuanian authorities.

Chinese vendor explained that BSI (German Federal Office for Information Security) had not detected any anomalies which would require further investigation or other measures, following an audit. Crucially, the regulator did not detect any transfer of filter lists, an issue that landed Xiaomi in hot water with Lithuanian authorities in 2021 due to concerns over censorship.

"We are pleased that, the results of the investigation conducted by the BSI, confirm our commitment to operate transparently, responsibly, and with the privacy and security of our customers as a top priority. It has proved that we adhere to all EU and national data privacy and security laws, as well as all applicable EU standards for devices. We welcome the exchange with users, regulators, and other stakeholders like the BSI as we are committed to constant improvement and innovation," Xiaomi spokesperson said.
