Xiaomi continues to improve its proprietary MIUI shell. So, this year there were two small updates – MIUI 12.5 and MIUI 12.5 Enhanced Edition, and now the manufacturer has introduced a new feature MIUI Pure Mode.
Xiaomi says that due to the open nature of Android, users can easily fall prey to attacks via malicious apps. 40% of applications installed by MIUI users have never passed its security audit, and 10% are found to be potentially dangerous.
MIUI Pure Mode is designed to protect the gadget and its owner from malicious applications. With this option enabled, users cannot install applications from external sources. In addition, it blocks any installation that occurs in the background without user consent.
This is how Apple acts, but unlike it, Xiaomi allows you to disable MIUI Pure Mode and install applications from other sources.
MIUI Pure Mode is currently being tested in China. When its full release will take place and whether the function will be available on the international market is still unknown.
