Says its phones collect data to investigate crashes and is an opt-in.
HTC has responded to a report from BGR last week after some users blamed the company for spying on them. According to users, two of HTC’s devices, HTC Sensation and HTC EVO 3D, were gathering stats and transmitting information in the background.
HTC, however, claims that the function are part of an opt-in service and denies spying on users based on the gathered information.
HTC further stated the data is used to investigate crashes and other unexpected errors.
“HTC is committed to protecting your privacy and that means a commitment to clear opt-in/opt-out as the standard for collecting any information we need to serve you better,” HTC said in its statement.
