User spots OnePlus 3T sending their clipboard data to servers in China
So, basically, anything you hit "copy" on — web addresses, contacts, photos, etc. — can be sent over to AliBaba, which is one of the biggest e-commerce sites to come out of China.
OnePlus has since commented that this was supposed to only happen on the Chinese build of its operating system — HydrogenOS — and not be live on the global edition, which is OxygenOS. The company assures us that the OxygenOS beta will be promptly updated to remove the clipboard "feature". OnePlus continued to explain that the data does not get saved on any server and that such practices are common on devices sold in China.
