Nokia 7 Plus phones sends personal information to a chinese server

A recent article by the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation has uncovered a serious breach of GDPR. Nokia 7 Plus phones would send a packet with personal information every time the phone booted or unlocked.

Apparently it has been patched with a recent update, and therefore fixed.

But, EU with its GDPR law better pursue this.

Read the article here (Translated from Norwegian to English, and the translation seems to hold up):
