Original title: Baidu: App will not, and no ability to monitor the phone

Tian Biao said, "telephone rights are a big authority, including cell phone identification, direct calls, call records, and so on, but can't monitor the phone. The main thing we use is to read the READ_PHONE_STATE and see how much the cell phone is left.

Baidu has said that Baidu mobile browser and mobile security satellite have a function of harassing phone interception, and millet phone has translated this function into "monitor phone", which has caused misunderstanding to a certain extent. In addition, Baidu has shown that it has been actively communicating, and does not refrain from rectifications. The process of communication between the two sides will be announced later today.

At the meeting, Baidu played a video. After recovering the factory settings, a Android mobile will display three popups (phone, location and storage) when it downloads Baidu, and users can choose in the privilege management of mobile phones. Tian Biao pointed out that different systems vendors have different standards for popups and popups. Some systems will grant some privileges that they think App is safe. The OPPO phones on the demo will not pop up when they download Baidu mobile.

The day before, Jiangsu province consumer protection entrusted with the mobile phone application violated consumers' personal information, interviewed two times without rectification on the grounds, filed a civil lawsuit in Baidu Inc. Subsequently, Baidu Inc responded exclusively to Xin Jing, claiming that its software access authority is authorized by users, there is no "monitor user", and it promises to continue to communicate with Jiangsu Provincial Consumer Protection Committee.

The investigation results of Jiangsu Consumer Protection Committee showed that users were not informed of Baidu Inc's access to various rights before installing two mobile phone software, Baidu mobile and Baidu browser. According to this, the Jiangsu Provincial Security Commission believes that as a search and browser class application, the above authority is not necessary for the provision of normal services and is beyond the reasonable scope.

According to the Consumer Protection Committee of Jiangsu province said, in the rectification program of Baidu Inc eventually submitted, the "mobile phone Baidu", "Baidu browser" in the "phone", "read short message" and "read contact" relates to consumers' personal information security permissions, and not for rectification, nor clearly prompted consumers the application software to obtain permission to the purpose and scope of the way and choice for consumers. The Jiangsu Provincial Security Commission believes that the Baidu Inc can not effectively protect consumers' right to know and choose.
