Protect your privacy in our products

We carefully follow the principle of Privacy by Design (PbD) and use/implement reliable and advanced privacy protection measures to ensure the protection of your privacy and personal data during your use of our products.

We commit to fully protecting your data through data anonymization, pseudonymization, and aggregation, and allowing you to agree to or reject data collection by toggling applicable switches on or off.

  • Huawei Pay

    Huawei Pay is a fast and safe method that enables you to make secure payments for online or in-store purchases.

    The bank card information you add to Huawei Pay will be converted into a unique token and stored independently on your device's security chip. Security chips provide a fully isolated operating space for sensitive data, protecting it from malicious acts that may occur in non-isolated environments.

    When you make a payment through Huawei Pay, only your token will be provided to the merchant, while your real bank card information and transaction data will not be stored or tracked.

    You can also use your enrolled fingerprints to complete each payment. Your fingerprint's biometric information will be encrypted and stored as a unique code inside the security chip of your device. It cannot be decrypted, and will not be uploaded to Huawei servers.

  • Huawei Health

    The Huawei Health app is your personal fitness and health assistant, providing you with professional exercise records, as well as fat-burning and body shaping workouts. It also offers sleep aid tips and health services to help you improve your body and live a healthier life. If you bind a wearable device or other health devices to the Huawei Health app on your phone, your step counts, distance, running routes, and your sleep, heart rate, and other data on the device will be encrypted and synced to your phone via the Bluetooth security protocol. Your personal data in the Huawei Health app will be encrypted and stored in your phone's internal memory with a randomly generated key that even Huawei cannot decrypt. If you authorize us to collect and process your Huawei Health data, you will be able to enjoy more professional guidance and health services, and your personal data will be sent to Huawei Cloud via the internationally accepted HTTPS security protocol and encrypted with a dynamic key to ensure its security.

Ensure developers' compliance with strict privacy standards
  • HUAWEI AppGallery

    All apps available in AppGallery must undergo four layers of security tests in order to ensure that they do not compromise the security of your personal information. You can see the results of the security tests for each app in the app details screen. We require app developers to comply with user privacy protection and security auditing provisions. If we find that an app violates the relevant requirements, we will ask the app developer to address the issue immediately. Otherwise, the app will be removed from HUAWEI AppGallery.

    When an app you have installed through AppGallery attempts to access your personal information such as your location or contacts for the first time, you will be prompted to grant the relevant permissions. Access permissions will only be granted with your consent. You can also revoke the relevant permissions at any time.

    In addition, we ensure that apps on AppGallery cannot gain full access to all your data and are prohibited from accessing certain special data types on your device. We have established rigorous privacy protection policies and measures, and will continue to strengthen them in due course. This is our commitment to you.
