At least some of the Nokia 7 Plus models have sent data sensitively to a Chinese server. Now the Finnish KPI is investigating the event.
HMD Global has been approached in recent years, especially with the use of Android smartphones, which are selling the company under the name of Nokia. Strangely, but at least some Nokia 7 Plus 2018 modules have supplied confidential data to a server in China. This was as a result of an investigation by the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation of NRK. The event was reinforced by HMD Global. The geographical location, SIM card number and number of phones affected has all been sent to the Chinese server.
NRK became aware of the data sharing division in January 2019 through the owner of Nokia 7 Plus. Meanwhile, a German IT security expert came across Dirk weather have redesigned the data and have been published on Twitter. As the Finnish newspaper tells Helsinin Sanomat, the data protection authorities in HMD Global's home country also research the issue. According to the local data protection officer Reijo Aarnio, the case may also affect the data protection authorities of other EU countries, as this is not specifically the specific data for Supper data.

Meanwhile, HMD Global told NRK that the event was just one smartphone. At the end of February 2019, the company also renovated the update. Furthermore, HMD Global said the data had never been handled and, in the company's view, it is not personal information. But some experts see it differently.
It is still evident how the relevant supervisory authorities will assess the case. If you don't share a HMD Global assessment, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) may be broken. Especially as companies are required to report on data breaches within 72 hours of relevant authorities. However, this is only necessary if the breach of risk data can be provided to users.
