Deepin announces that it will no longer collect statistical data through Deepin Store

Just a few days ago A special statement was made on the Deepin website in which it waives the data collection, this is in response to a great controversy that had been generated a few months ago.

Where a user reported that the distribution spied on users and collected data of these through the system app store.

Trying to end the rumors, the person in charge of Deepin gave an answer. From now on, the system will no longer collect statistical data. Therefore, Deepin will not collect user data.

It is true that operating systems usually collect certain information, from an error report to user preferences (what web browser you use, screen resolution, hardware, etc.)

This is in order to gradually improve the system and thereby offer a better experience to its users and keep them in the market.

Although in theory it is not something new, those responsible for Deepin got the matter out of hand.

In this way, the person in charge of Deepin OS informs us that "the back-end of Deepin store is a web page", and CNZZ is a well-known Internet statistical analysis service provider in China just like Google Analytics.

This type of service offers the collection of information anonymously, such as the version of the web browser, the screen resolution and so on «.

"Some users think that the code used in the CNZZ Deepin Store statistics is collecting user privacy, especially for some users biased outside of China, China's operating system is considered unreliable."

The people of Deepin argue that the use of this service provider "CNZZ" was included to detect web page problems, obtain the information and provide users with an optimized and satisfactory experience.

While we want you to know why we collect information and help us improve product quality together, we choose to respect the opinions and advice of community members. In the new version, we remove the statistics from CNZZ Deepin store, avoiding being misinterpreted.

Deepin will not collect user data

Given this, the person in charge of Deepin I assure that the Internet statistical analysis service "CNZZ" has been removed from the "Deepin Store" system store. This in order to give a solution to the rumors and controversies that have been generated at once.

Those who are against Deepin, please must think objectively. Compared to closed source Microsoft and Mac OS, Deepin OS is based on Linux, so it is more transparent and reliable, which follows the principles of the open source community and Deepin has shared the source code of each and every one of your own applications.

Anyone is welcome to analyze and review. If there are any security issues, please notify us and we will have a solution at any time or in a future release.

Finally, The person in charge of Deepin ensures that the distribution and its work team have and will have a strong commitment to the system in addition to arguing that Deepin is not willing to collect personal information of users, not only today, but also in the future.

If you are users of the latest version of Deepin do not worry, in this version you no longer have this problem in the Deepin Store.

If more to say, we would like to know your opinions about it, what do you think of this type of situation, is it valid or goes against the user

Canonical for its part in the latest version of its system which is "Ubuntu 18.04" from the installation process, asks the user for authorization to collect data. That apparently and for the moment it has worked for him.

Do you think Deepin should do the same or just leave the matter out?

    And what about the luks encryption facility that most linux distributions offer? Why doesn't Deepin offer it like linux mint debian edition? I think it is important to note the privacy policies that some of these distributions are having.
