Chinese authorities in the western province of Xinjiang have issued instructions to residents to install spyware on their mobile devices.
A total of 43 Android phone makers, not three as originally reported, have been caught using ADUPS software to collect personally identifiable information without consent.

In the past China has been known to use a variety of methods to filter and track Internet usage and monitor online conversations.
