But the strange thing is that Huawei Mate 30 has previously passed this test of Google.
Shortly after the well-known developer John Wu discovered that Huawei silently created backdoors right inside Mate 30’s software to be able to install Google’s system apps, the device was told it was not. passed the Google SafetyNet security test.
Google’s SafetyNet solution aims to help Android developers add an extra layer of security to their apps to protect users from security threats caused by rooted or modified devices, as well as malicious links, malware or other risks.
Passing SafetyNet security tests is also one of the mandatory conditions for a device to use Google Pay, Google’s mobile payment solution on Android. Currently, 9to5Google correspondent Damien Wilde has been unable to use the Google Pay feature on the Huawei Mate 30 Pro he’s testing.
Initially, Huawei Mate 30 still passed SafetyNet security tests, but now it is no longer available.
What’s even stranger is that before John Wu posted his article on Medium, Huawei Mate 30 was still certified to pass the SafetyNet test. Although it is not clear how to pass this SafetyNet test, it is enabled by comparing the signature generated by the phone with “reference data for licensed Android devices” held by Google. .
It is not clear whether the reason for this change is related to the developer John Wu’s post or the impact of US government cooperation bans imposed on Huawei. This could also be just a bug in Google’s system and could be restored in the future when the OEM equipment manufacturer sends the information back to Google about the SafetyNet test – however, it’s almost certainly This is not happening today.
