Articles in the media have been doing rounds regarding Xiaomi, reportedly sending user data to its Chine-based servers, without letting the user know of it. Xiaomi recently issued a clarification on Mi India’s official facebook page.

Before getting on to what Xiaomi has to say, let us break down the controversy for you. Recently, an article on a website, claimed that Xiaomi smartphones secretly sent data to a server in China without the user’s permission. This news spread like wildfire and gathered extreme hype and attention.

Here’s what Xiaomi has to offer as an explanation :
