China’s pet for cyber espionage

Year Established: 1987

Headquarters: Shenzhen, China

Parent: Huawei Investment & Holding Co., China

Our Findings

Huawei is headquartered in China, run by Chinese individuals and owned by a Chinese holding company – Huawei Investment and Holding Co. The company has faced criticism for cybersecurity, intellectual property, and human rights violations. Above all, Huawei uses its own system on a chip (SoC) and baseband chip which makes it harder to trust the brand. Huawei has also been accused of plugging backdoors in their hardware and software products. Reports of Huawei staff admitting to having worked with Chinese intelligence agencies have also surfaced recently.

If you use a Huawei phone, it’s possible the firm’s handing your data to the Chinese government, because it would need to do so as per the country’s espionage and national security laws. This makes it very hard to trust or recommend Huawei phones.
