  • A German IT watchdog group didn’t find any evidence of alleged Xiaomi censorship tools on its phones.
  • The group says it doesn’t need to investigate this matter further.
  • The investigation began after Lithuania accused Xiaomi of having the ability to censor its phones.

In September 2021, the country of Lithuania levied some heavy accusations against Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi. The allegations surrounded supposed code within Xiaomi smartphones that could allow for censorship of certain terms. In a statement, Xiaomi denied ever doing this, but didn’t deny having the ability to do it.
