Huawei Spying Allegations Denied

Huawei has once again denied that it’s in the SpyPhone business. Per The Guardian, Huawei recently wrote a cybersecurity paper in which it said that it has never been ordered by the Chinese government to use its smartphones or telecom equipment to spy on customers. Huawei’s statement comes at a time when it’s been labeled a security risk by the American government for its alleged ties to the Chinese government. Of course, Huawei isn’t the only major tech company that’s had its reputation damaged by allegations of colluding with its government to spy on customers, as Microsoft, Google, Facebook and other American tech giants have been scrambling to reassure their customers that they aren’t being spied upon by the National Security Agency.
