OnePlus was recently in news as a security researcher claimed that the OnePlus device sends certain user patterns to the company's server. This is done without the user's permission. OnePlus has responded stating it is to improve services, but can be disabled.
Researcher Christopher Moore said that the company is collecting details such as phone number, IMEI number, mobile serial number, MAC address, mobile network names, and battery status. He said that other data related to usage pattern is also collected such as when the user locks the device, unlocks and also abnormal reboot. The company has now responded and says that it does so to improve its service. And, the data transmission can be switched off.
