Google: Cutting Us Off From Huawei Is a Security Risk

The Chinese company declined to comment on Facebook's decision. In fact, according to a report from the Financial Times, Google has warned the usa government of the potential security challenges arising from this ban on Huawei.

Facebook Inc. said on Friday it would no longer allow pre-installation of its WhatsApp, Instagram and other apps on new Huawei phones. As it now stands, the company is not allowed to support Huawei with Android updates and such, which means the company will have to develop its own operating system if it wants to stay in the business (and reports are saying Huawei already has a backup OS lined up). Google warned that this hybrid version will likely contain more security bugs than Google's OS.

Google has been granted a temporary licence to support and update the Android software now running on existing Huawei phones, although this expires in August.
