"The Times’s analysis found that as soon as a user grants the software
access to personal data, a piece of the program labeled
“reportInfoAndLocationToPolice” sends the person’s location, city name and
an identifying code number to a server. The software does not make clear to
users its connection to the police. But according to China’s state-run
Xinhua news agency and an official police social media account, law
enforcement authorities were a crucial partner in the system’s development."
