Which "issue" exactly? What was changed? Adups-Version still seems to be the same as before upgrade (4.3.0.0).

Please be more specific.

See attached Screenshots (bigdata.adsunflower.com etc.)

That′s the behavior described in Kryptowire Article (http://www.kryptowire.com/adups_security_analysis.html).

So. My Phone is sending Data, which i can′t conrol, to China. Currently about 3 MB (see second screenshot). On latest firmware (where you said the "issue is modified").

I think you owe me an explanation. What′s up vernee?

I want to know, what happens to the Data Adups (and other Software?) is obviously collecting! What kind of Data is it? And, aboove all, what are your plans to stop that unwanted behavoir of our Thor?

As long you keep silent, my Thor continues to send Data somewhere. See attached Screenshot.

What we need here is honest and transparent Information!

You'll be lucky to get a satisfactory answer from Vernee, they're just like the rest of the small Chinese phone manufacturers, support is horrendous and phone's are quickly abandoned.

This is not acceptable. I expect an answer and think I deserve it as a customer. What data does my mobile phone send here without my knowledge? What does Vernee do? Or: If I have no reason to worry, i would still like to get explained why FOTA/Adups sends several megabytes to Nirvana.

Thank you!

You won't get an acceptable reply, they give out very limited info. I think you already know why your personal info is getting sent to China and why you don't get a full answer from Vernee. They're not sorry for the data theft, they're sorry they got caught.

Seems they updated FOTA to 5.5 with latest Update (Nougat). Need to investigate.

Vernees communication is very disappointing.

Yeah. I haven't updated from 6.0 to 7.0 yet, but I'd like to know as well if there are some apps that still transfer data to China and how they're called so I can disable them.
