    I'm totally against putting any Chinese company powered service on my OnePlus. I just hope this never comes to the stable Oxygen OS. I will be removing it then and using the Files Go by Google instead.

    You know, OnePlus is a Chinese company, right?
    But yeah, I have no need for a Tencent app on my phone.

    I know about that but still I bought OnePlus because of the bloatware free nature of their devices compared to the other Chinese manufacturers. This is a bad move and will take away the peace of mind that I am having while using my OnePlus 6.

    If this does make it out of beta (and out of India), at least there is always the option to replace file manager.

    Yes. But i have denied storage permission for that game. Basically, that app hasn't been granted any permissions, and is strictly online for me.

    PUBG / Fortnite have never been installed on my device because of Tencent's involvement. Even though EGS is giving away a ton of free games on their new storefront, I refuse to install it on my PC because of Tencent's stake with their company.

    A couple million more no votes to go on the petition/poll and maybe we can get this thing reversed...

    ... even though most of us have told a Cupcake at one time or another that OnePlus doesn't read these threads.

    Just my ten - I mean two cents. ;)

    This is just simply privacy breach which I cannot accept, either I will be unistalling that file manager app, if that's possible, else I will sell this phone off!
    Don't want a phone which will send my data to some shitty Chinese server!
    And if this keeps continuing with upcoming phones, won't even recommend anyone to buy OnePlus phones!

    People here are saying it's not big of a deal... but how this cannot be a big deal, when a company promises to deliver speed & performance and now tricking user with such shitty cleaners filled with data stealing embedded in it.

    Why a cleanup feature need to send data to an external server at all???

    I would even want the Amazon Apps (Kindle, Amazon Music, Amazon Shopping and Prime Video) to stop being crammed down our throats. If I wanted any of the apps, I'd download it. This is sheer bloatware.

    First of all, spending your time hacking doesn't necessarily make you more aware of privacy issues.

    Second, if you don't click on ads, or install/visit random apps/websites, you're fine. It's not like the moment you visit a website you'll get malware, but you shouldn't visit sketchy things in the first place.

    Third, privacy does not exist. period. The government has more information about you than OnePlus would ever be able to get through collecting statistical data. Do you really care about someone knowing that you have Facebook installed because the app crashed once?

    Edit: On topic: while I agree that this isn't really something we want (purely because it's something you don't need, and if you do, you have the Play Store for that) it isn't something that collects sensitive data.

    You can Uninstall all amazon apps if you don't want them.

    They probably sell more devices in India than any other region so it’s kinda big deal tbh.
    Birth of a fanboi :rolleyes:
    You’re not, i mean the code is still there you wouldn’t know if they triggered it somehow.
    Maybe you didn’t get it, what i found from reading all these posts is that it’s akchually less about OnePlus and more about Tencent.
