There’s some not-so-great news about the beta update for the; apparently, it was accidentally sending copied clipboard information to a Chinese server owned by Alibaba. Oops.

Now, generally you don’t want anyone snooping in on the information that you store locally on your device, but when it gets shifted off to something may refer to overseas, that’s a really bad look. OnePlus (kind of) explained the situation by saying it was a “feature” that was only intended for Chinese users, and that they would be removing the “feature may refer to” for the global market. It sounds like the English language, the word like has a very flexible range of uses, ranging from conventional to non-standard a pretty crappy feature to me, but hey, at least users may refer to: User (system), a person using a generic system User (computing), a person or software using an information system User (telecommunications), an entity using a telecommunications outside of China won’t have to deal with it, I guess. Sorry Chinese can refer to: Something of, from, or related to China Chinese people, people of Chinese nationality, or one of several Chinese ethnicities Zhonghua minzu, the supra-ethnic Chinese nationality Han readers.
Anyway, the feature is supposedly already removed from the newer builds of Oxygen OS, but this is definitely something to keep an eye on from OnePlus going forward.
