Xiaomi, India’s No.1 smartphone brand, today announced that it is going to store user data locally inside India as per Indian government’s recommendations. It is migrating user data across Xiaomi e-commerce platform (www.mi.com/in/), Mi Community (in.c.mi.com), Mi Cloud, MIUI (Xiaomi Market, feed, Mi Video, advertising, Mi Messaging, push notifications, etc) and Mi TV to Microsoft Azure and AWS in India. All new Indian user data is being stored locally since 1st July and all the existing data would be migrated by the end of 2018.
“At Xiaomi, data privacy and security are of the utmost importance to us. We are taking one more step towards user data security and privacy by bringing our cloud servers to India for all local data needs. It’s something our teams have been working tirelessly on and I am glad we have been able to turn this around for our India users. With the data stored locally and encrypted end to end, users will be able to enjoy up to four times higher access speed when using Xiaomi’s services. Xiaomi is committed to India and data protection and bringing our cloud servers to India is another step in that direction for us. We will continue to work on this aspect and ensure a heightened user experience for all our users in India,” said Manu Jain, Vice President, Xiaomi and Managing Director, Xiaomi India.
