The Chinese military has developed smartphone security software that will automatically alert authorities if it detects any violations of Internet use.
The People’s Liberation Army (PLA) Daily, the official newspaper of the Chinese military, reported on Sunday that the PLA Rocket (Missile) Force introduced the mobile phone security platform to better regulate smartphone use in the military.
The software which is still in its test phases will automatically alerts authorities if soldiers leak sensitive information or use their handset devices during blackouts. It is capable of tracking each user's telephone number and cellphone model.
The newspaper said the software can be installed or uninstalled remotely, ban access to specified websites, set restrictions on communication hours and screen for sensitive words.
According to the newspaper, the software aims to better enforce management of mobile phone use among soldiers, as well as address fears of confidential information leaks.
The software aims to create a "safe space for soldiers to surf the Internet," the report added.
