OK, so I know very little about all related subjects. I hope this is an appropriate place to post – if not I apologize and can move it if you guys could tell me where would be better. I didn’t want to post on the Xiaomi subreddit because I’m looking for unbiased info.
So my child is 13, loves tech and I don’t want to kill his impulse to experiment and explore. He managed to get a hold of a Xiaomi Redmi 10 and assures me it’s totally safe, but I’m seeing tons of articles out there talking about unauthorized data collection, secret backdoors and a DOD ban on doing business with Xiaomi.
I don’t want to tell the kid no, but I also don’t want to open the rest of the household up to any kind of compromise.
thanks for your input!
