(Yicai Global) May 21 -- DJI Technology, the world's biggest maker of consumer drones, has dismissed a notice issued by the US Department of Homeland Security that suggests the Chinese firm's products may be sharing data with the authorities in China.
DJI's drone data is completely controlled by its users, the Beijing News reported, citing the Shenzhen-based firm.
Unmanned aerial vehicles produced in China may be sending sensitive flight data back to their manufacturers, which the Chinese government can access, the DHS said in a notice to US businesses yesterday, without naming any Chinese companies.
DJI has always attached great importance to data protection, and the technical security of its products has been repeatedly verified globally, including by the US government and leading American companies, the Beijing News added.
Clients may also use the Local Data Mode to stop internet traffic, as well as store their data on a private cloud, the firm added.
DJI's global market share was almost three-quarters last year and that in the US and Canada was almost 80 percent, according to a report from US Skylogic Research.
