Xiaomi pays great attention to improving its proprietary shell: this year, the manufacturer released two updates, including MIUI 12.5 and MIUI 12.5 Enhanced Edition. In addition, the company is also working on many other features, one of which is the MIUI Pure Mode.
The Chinese tech giant is already testing the MIUI Pure Mode feature in China. This helps users protect themselves from malicious applications. The company claims that due to the open nature of Android, users can easily fall prey to malware attacks. The smartphone maker explains that 40% of apps installed by MIUI users have never passed an information security audit. In addition, 10% of these applications are considered potentially dangerous.
When the MIUI Clean Mode feature is enabled, users cannot install apps from external sources. In addition, MIUI Pure Mode blocks any installation that happens in the background without users’ consent.
Unlike Apple, Xiaomi allows users to disable this feature. Therefore, they can install applications from other sources if they wish.
After testing, MIUI Pure Mode will appear in the stable build of MIUI 12.5 Enhanced Edition.
