Tourists with Android phones are having their devices taken away by Chinese border patrol agents who then snoop on their contents. Could new blockchain technology be the best defense against these practices?

Local Muslims are being forced to install system-searching software on their mobile devices on top of dealing with facial-recognition cameras around their living spaces. Many top publications including The Guardian and The Verge have reported on the story after investigating it for quite some time.

Non-Optional Surveillance
Apparently, when travelers are going through the Chinese border patrol process, workers are taking their phones and other devices into a separate room before returning them later on.

The patrol puts iPhone devices into a scanner, but Android phones have an entire application installed. In both cases, Chinese guards are looking into your contacts, text history, and social media usernames. That information then sits on a server, while workers delete the application and return the device. However, sometimes they forget to do so, which is how news of the app came about.

No one knows exactly what they’re doing with this data, but it would be possible to find someone’s place of residence among other things thanks to it. This practice isn’t happening anywhere else in China — just in the Xinjiang region. The Chinese government claims this is to increase security, but nobody wants border patrol agents snooping through their data.

One traveler speaking to The Guardian hypothesized,

“There was another checkpoint about two hours away and I was thinking that maybe they had downloaded things and they would have all of their analysts going through it all while we were traveling, and then maybe they [would] send people back when they got to the next place.”
