If all Xiaomi wants is to improve user experience, I don't see why they can't collect the data but just be more transparent about it.
and the ironic part is people are fighting on this topic in Facebook,I'm also a Facebook user tho but I ain't that serious about this.cz I know there's no hidden nuclear missile activation code in my phone

Back in the day, these were called malwares. Talk about normalizing malwares to the common man.
Yes, that includes MS with their windows 10 telemetry justifications. And this one from Xiaomi.
Anonymous, 04 May 2020It isnt only about browsing history, it is also about every single thing you do. Opened an app... moreNot until american companies do the same. The only thing you can opt out of with Google is them using your data for "personalisation:" ads, search results, recommendations. They will still collect your data because they have no incentive not to do so. We all know how much american companies just looooooove obeying the law, right?
All the manufacturers are collecting data from their customers phones...Main reason for it is to use all that feedback to improve their phones through future updates...system,apps,security...
All four major US carriers were collecting and SELLING those data(private informations) to whoever was willing to pay for them...on a black/gray/muddy/shady....market..Why?To make money...and that's perfectly fine..What Forbes thinks about that?Nah...forget about it, let's cast a stone at Xiaomi... that's much more easier..
It isnt only about browsing history, it is also about every single thing you do. Opened an app: xiaomi knows, opended a folder: xiaomi knows, listening to music? Cmon they know your taste already.
I know facebook is nowhere near privacy so I merely use it, I know also google collects data but at least you can opt out from the account settings. But xiaomi? I don't think so.
China is a terrible dictatorship, and USA is democratic but have terrible authorities.
So please xiaomi fans, instead of defending xiaomi you should pressure on them to stop it.
so ?? Xiaomi Black Shark 3 still gonna be my next phone...
oohhh.. I'm so scare...
Who makes use of Mi Browser? To me, its not useful. I perfer Chrome or Firefox
Anonymous, 04 May 2020just admit xiaomi messed up big time so desperate to defend that stupid brand until must talk ... moreI like how you're completely ignoring that other companies have been collecting user data for years, even going so far as to say that we're just making excuses. Sure, Xiaomi collects user data, but so does every american company. Google and Facebook especially are so intertwined with most people's lives that what Xiaomi did is microscopic compared to the amount of data Google and Facebook have on you.
I've already got the privacy update for the mi browser. I don't know what the fuss is, all browsers collect data especially Google Chrome. Pretty sure privacy focussed browsers like Brave also collect user data. I use Opera myself, and I'm pretty sure it collects data like the rest of them.

If I hated as you pretend, I would't have been a faithful user of Xiaomi Smartphone Flagships for the last 7 years (and at least 10 of my friends use today Xiaomi Smartphones because of my recommendation)!!! Stop protecting some terrible dictatorship that is blackmailing half of African and Asian countries and oppressing 99% of its population, stealing hundreds of billions of intellectual property of western companies.

We know the truth so calm down and take your hatred elsewhere... This is a phone issue and you're already talking about how perfect and bad a country is..... I won't be surprised if xiaomi gets the knife soon.. The hatred is too much
I'm (I've been) faithful user of Xiaomi Smartphone Flagships for 7 years (and at least 10 of my friends use today Xiaomi Smartphones because of my recommendation) now but reading this article in Forbes put my faith in Xiaomi in tatters. I never used Xiaomi's own browser but it is disturbing because Xiaomi might not limit data collection only in its browser but extend it to other parts of the operating system. If so then I would certainly change Xiaomi for some other brand.
