However, the behavior of Flash Player before the domestic version is not excessive, at most, it is bundled with some plug-ins, Internet navigation, you can understand, users can also install the original version by switching foreign IP.

But now it's different. Flash Player will detect the user's location. If the domestic user installs a non-local version, it will be incompatible, unable to run, and then force a new version to be reinstalled.

The query shows that this domestic special version of Flash Player comes from Chongqing Zhonghuang Network Technology Co., Ltd., and it also cooperates with Adobe.

The special feature of this version is that after installation, a service called FlashHelperService will be forced to run. The name is related to the help service, but it will forcibly collect user privacy.

The user agreement given by Adobe also clearly states that during the use of Flash Player, Orange may collect the user's online information, and emphasize that it has been explicitly authorized by the user, and disclosure of the user's personal data and Internet information is not a breach of contract. Even the loss of user data cannot be guaranteed.

But it’s worth pondering that after being exposed, Adobe and OrangeQuickly modified the user agreementThe long statement of privacy has been streamlined to just a paragraph, saying only that "the program may record information about how the user uses the program and the user's use of the program's data without infringing the user's personal privacy."

If you don't want to install and use this domestic special version of Adobe Flash Player, there is also a version, which is changed to "Chinese (Simplified, Singapore)" in the system area and language settings.
