Sony Mobile 表示,MyXperia 能讓用戶在遺失手機時可以定位並即時上鎖,並未如外傳般將個人資料傳送至中國北京伺服器。



日前曾有消費者發現,搭載 Android 4.4 KitKat 作業系統的 Sony Xperia 智慧型手機中,就算沒有安裝百度應用程式,也會自動出現名為「baidu」的資料夾,且刪除後還會自動重新出現,並會透過 MyXperia 將資料傳送至中國伺服器,被認為這是間諜程式。

對此,Sony Mobile 做出回應,表示 MyXperia 是 Sony 所推出的安全應用,若是手機遺失能即時定位與上鎖,並不會傳送用戶資料;由於該程式為支援 Google 雲端服務及百度推送服務而設,故 2014 年夏天起增加至程式的通知框架。

不過由於並非所有消費者均位於中國大陸,Sony Mobile 表示新版本的 MyXperia 將能讓用戶自行選擇所在地區,預計近期就會推出。

Sony Mobile 回應全文:

I’ve had some further feedback from the guys in our development team. I can confirm that Xperia phones don’t store any user data for transmission to Baidu. The MyXperia app supports both Google Cloud Messaging service and the Baidu Push Notification framework, as do many third party apps, to make sure we can support our China customers as well as those in the rest of the world. Both get automatically initialised when you first activate MyXperia. The IP activity you are seeing is just linked to Baidu’s push notification system, which is an expected behaviour for this application.”

Future updates of MyXperia will be optimised so the Baidu Push Notification framework is only initialized in Mainland China variants of Xperia devices. But as these services are common standards in the industry, other 3rd party applications may also include Baidu Push Notifications or other Baidu services, resulting in the Baidu folder being shared between such applications. Sony Mobile fully reassures all its customers that MyXperia uses a push notification system and does not store any user data for transmission to Baidu.
