In China, Xiaomi has begun employing testers for a new feature called “MIUI Pure Mode,” This is an additional feature that aids users in securing themselves from malicious applications when they are not using the device.
According to the business, because of the open nature of Android, users are more susceptible to becoming the target of an attack through malicious applications. According to the smartphone manufacturer, 40 percent of the apps installed by MIUI users have never cleared the company’s security audit. In addition, 10 percent have been identified as possible threats to the public.
Xiaomi is introducing MIUI Pure Mode in order to address this issue. When this feature is enabled, users will be unable to install applications from third-party sources. Additionally, it prevents any installation from occurring in the background without the knowledge of the user.
Xiaomi, in contrast to Apple, allows consumers to turn off this feature. As a result, they have the option of installing programs from other sources if they so desire.
As of right now, it is unclear when MIUI Pure Mode will find its way to the stable channel of the operating system. Most significantly, there is no information on whether or not it will be available in overseas markets at this time.
