The Mi Cloud is a feature of all Xiaomi electronic devices, such as Xiaomi mobile phones or Xiaomi tablets. It can store your mobile phone information, contacts, private photos and so on anytime and anywhere. But is Mi Cloud safe or not?

Xiaomi undertakes to take reasonable and necessary precautions to protect the data security of users within the scope of the existing technology license.

Mi Cloud will not save your password plaintext on the server, but will encrypt and save the one-way irreversible hash necessary for password authentication.

When you access Mi Cloud (using Mi Cloud client applications and websites, for example, MIUI Xiaomi account synchronization), Mi Cloud will use a security token to authenticate instead of saving your password on your mobile device or computer.

No one on the Mi Cloud team will ask you for a password.

The personal data of Mi Cloud users is strictly encrypted before it is stored on the Mi Cloud server. Even if the developer or maintainer gets the disk directly, he or she cannot decrypt the data, so there is no need to worry about the leakage of the user's personal data.

Mi Cloud uses at least 128 bits of AES encryption (the same security level as major financial institutions) and never provides encryption keys to any third party without violating Mi Cloud terms of service, privacy policies and national laws and regulations.

Mi Cloud part of the data storage (such as Mi Cloud photo album image file storage, etc.) by our partner Jinshan Cloud, this part of the data Jinshan Cloud also uses at least 128 bits of AES encryption protection;

●Role-Based Access Control

According to different administrator roles, hierarchical data access control must be authorized by multiple different roles in order to obtain all the information used to decrypt the content of user data and prevent the disclosure of user privacy.

On the premise of not violating the Mi Cloud terms of service, privacy policy and national laws and regulations, strictly control the access rights of the server data store, and do not authorize a single person to obtain all the permissions to decrypt the user data store.

Conduct strict audit and regular inspection of data storage access operations.
