We are not controlled by the Nazis says Vichy France - 1942
That's exactly what someone who is controlled by china would say 👀
Article 12: National intelligence work institutions
may, according to relevant state regulations, establish cooperative
relationships with relevant individuals and organizations, and
commission them to carry out related work.
National intelligence work institutions, when carrying out intelligence
work according to laws, may ask relevant institutions, organizations
and citizens to provide necessary support, assistance and cooperation.
Was about to post that. Chinese law requires that companies both hand over any and all data requested by the CCP, and deny that they do so.
It's pretty universal that large tech companies hand over data they can access regardless of their country, so denying this is just laughable. But whatever pleases investors I guess.
They could very well be telling the truth now, but what's to prevent the Chinese government strong-arming them to do so in the future? That's the concern. So long as they're based in China and operate by Chinese law, the possibility always exists for them to make backdoors.
It's entirely possible they're not spying on anyone now. When hit pieces by Forbes announce backdoors but evidence fails to materialize, it looks bad on Forbes. It creates the image that people are overreacting, and that's exactly what they want. They need the air of innocence so that they can trojan horse backdoors into established Huawei systems.
US government departments pulled contracts after they discovered that there were backdoors in devices they sought to use... they aren't telling the truth to any degree.
Yeap and then Bloomberg did their hit piece claiming telnet is a backdoor by Huawei.
Is this anything for the average citizen to worry about? Like what would the Chinese gov get out of eavesdropping on my communications?
Well say you spoke ill about the communist party, and you happen to have a business trip to China
Good luck to you if they ever try to make you disappear. And who's to say they can't detain you for some other bullshit reason?
And I believe them, to an extent. These companies don't want central government interference in their plans, because it means having to share the power and the pots of gold with CCP higher-ups. A lot of Westerners have the idea that the CCP and all the major companies are one big, happy family. That's not really true, they butt heads quite a bit behind closed doors. The agreements come because both of them know that if one goes down, they'll take the other with them.
On top of that, they know it hurts their business. No business will actively choose to hurt themselves.
Can you guys please be opened minded to the fact that China aren't the bad guys let's be rational and think about this

ok now that we're alone, this is kinda funny.
Honestly I'm surprised it took this long for someone to deploy the Chinese EMP.
Have you by any chance been following some of the nitty gritty of the ongoing Russian invasions of Ukraine and Syria? There have been multiple times in those conflicts where troop positions and movements were able to be tracked simply by accessing the social media accounts of the soldiers and insurgents involved. If China were to, say, continue its attempts to sell their technology to countries they want to invade like, for example, every other Asian nation except North Korea, then equipment backdoors would be majorly useful to them as the locals would essentially have to go fully off the grid to avoid classified information leaks. There was an incident around the start of last year where a fitness tracking app released a full map of all its user activity, and in doing so published maps of multiple classified army bases. It doesn't even necessarily have to be the soldiers themselves whose data is being accessed, for example on social media sites where you can make activity and messaging available to friends only, accessing any friend account would give you the ability to read that data.
A private company in China is not the same as a private company in the West. A private company in China is like a Schrodinger cat with Damocles sword hanging above it. So that remark means nothing, really.
