The renown Chinese company, Huawei is believed to be spying its users. Huawei had a lot of big plans for the US market, which have been crushed since the company started facing this rumour. US government took strict action against Huawei by advising American people and the companies to not purchase its devices. American agencies like NSA, CIA and FBI believe that Huawei devices are being used by Chinese to spy its American users. It leads to forced the company to exit the market. Not only this, company has also been ordered to take its unlocked phones off the shelf.
However, the company’s CEO Richard Yu rejected the rumours by saying:
“We are committed to the US market and to earning the trust of US consumers by staying focused on delivering world-class products and innovation. We would never compromise that trust, the security risk concerns are based on groundless suspicions and are quite frankly unfair. So we welcome an open and transparent discussion if it is based on facts”.
The company ,Huawei is working with 46 of the 50 global operators, this means they do have proper security for its users and respect their privacy. Huawei has 13 working offices in the US with over 1000 employees. This shows Huawei wants to make a mark in the US market. The CEO has not been satisfied with the answers the agencies have been giving them like Huawei devices are sending personal data back to China which is being closely monitored, which the CEO finds baseless.
Huawei pushed out of the US market
For Huawei phone lovers concerned thing is that Huawei is the only Chinese company which is being pushed out of the US market. If US has trust issues with China then it is inscrutable to see other Chinese companies like Lenovo or OnePlus operating in the US market.
Currently China has highest market share in smart phones, among all the countries. Huawei has grown into one of China’s largest private corporations even if its unable to enter US market. It is now planning to expand into the overseas market such as Europe.
