Google: the Huawei ban itself is a national security threat to the U.S.
Google just warned the US that their Huawei ban is actually a national security threat instead of a positive thing. To start, we’re talking about 350 million existing Huawei phones that won’t be getting Android security updates. Another problem is that allowing Huawei to have its own OS would hurt the dependency on Android and hurt American companies in the long run. According to a Reuters report a “modified-android based Huawei OS” would be more susceptible to hacks as well. In the meantime Facebook has removed their apps to come pre-installed in Huawei devices, but people with Huawei phones are fine.
Do you agree with Google or not that it’s not a good idea to ban Huawei?
