MIUI is undoubtedly the most complete Android customization, although not without bugs. Speaking of which, in this article
we’ve collected a series of tedious issues related to version 12.5 of Xiaomi’s Android skin. We recommend you take a look at them. That said, we know that the security team is the one working hardest and the proof is in the latest update that brings a new feature. In fact, the antivirus definitions have been updated: now two antivirus are working together instead of one. Let’s see the details.
Xiaomi boosts MIUI and its security: with the latest update, the Security app uses two antivirus instead of one, namely AVL and Tencent
One of the first things you usually do when you buy a Xiaomi smartphone is update, or rather change, the definitions of the antivirus. What does that mean? Usually every smartphone comes out of the factory with certain definitions but we, through Settings > Security
can change them. For example, if the factory MIUI comes out with the antivirus definitions of AVL, we can change with those of Tencent. Well, with the latest update of MIUI we are given the opportunity to use both
. Let’s see how.
- Previously only one definition was used, in this case AVL
- With the new MIUI update it is possible to combine AVL and Tencent
This update has arrived with the Chinese build V21.7.26. But this is not the only change. As you’ll notice in the image on the right, at the bottom, just above the antivirus definitions, MIUI has also added another field. This is the one for “Possible Risks
“. When we go to activate the security scan on our smartphone, will be listed under this heading the possible problems that the scan itself has detected.
As usual, it is necessary to say that this update concerns for NOW only the Chinese ROM. It is not excluded that the new feature of MIUI related to security and antivirus comes from us. Indeed, considering the importance that lies in the feature in question, we are sure that will come with the next updates.
