Security and Privacy
Location Information Protection
Location Services: Determine the Location of Your Phone
Location Services collects and provides location information for location-based apps (such as weather,
maps, travel, and shopping apps) on your Phone. The approximate location of your Phone is
determined by GPS positioning (if GPS is enabled and the service is available), mobile network data,
and Wi-Fi positioning (if enabled). If GPS positioning is disabled, apps can still collect location
information in other ways.
Enable or Disable Location Services
After obtaining the location information permission, apps can obtain your location at any time. If your
location information is obtained by a malicious app, you may be at risk of harm or fraud. You can
enable or disable location services as needed and regularly monitor and manage the allowed
permissions for your apps to protect your privacy and security.
Enable or disable location services: Open
Settings, go to Security & privacy > Location
services, and enable or disable Access to my location. When location services are enabled, you can
also set the appropriate positioning mode. When location services are disabled, aside for pre-installed
software (such as Find my Phone), your Phone will stop all apps and services from collecting and using
your location information. The system will ask you to enable location services when you attempt to
use these apps.
l
Use Wi-Fi and mobile networks: Calculates your Phone's location using carrier base station
location information or nearby Wi-Fi router location information. The accuracy of the location
information depends largely upon location information gathered from the base station or Wi-Fi
network. Accuracy normally ranges from 100 metres to several kilometres. Network positioning has
low accuracy, but allows for positioning while indoors and uses less battery power.
l
Use GPS only: Only uses satellites found by your Phone's GPS to determine your position. No
network connection is needed. GPS satellite positioning is more accurate but also uses more battery.
It is accurate within tens of metres. However, indoor positioning may be inaccurate.
l
Use GPS, Wi-Fi and mobile networks: Combines the benefits of GPS positioning and networking
positioning for accurate indoor and outdoor positioning.
l
Features may vary depending on your carrier.
l
Huawei only uses location data to provide you with necessary functions and services, not for
the purpose of identifying and collecting your private information.
Set indoor positioning assistance: Open
services >
Settings, go to Security & privacy > Location
> Scan settings, and enable or disable Wi-Fi and Bluetooth scanning. Scanning Wi-Fi
networks and Bluetooth devices will improve the accuracy of indoor positioning.

Security and Privacy
Use App Lock to Lock Important Apps
App lock allows you to set a password for your WeChat, Alipay, and other important apps. Once you
restart your Phone or unlock the Phone screen, you will be asked to enter your App lock password
when initially opening the apps. App lock enhances the protection of your private information and
prevents unauthorised access to important apps on your device.
Enable App lock: Open
Settings. Go to Security & privacy > App lock, and follow the
onscreen instructions to set a password, then enable App lock for the apps you want to protect.
When you initially open a locked app, follow the onscreen instructions to enter your password and
the answer to your security question.
If you have set up a fingerprint to unlock your Phone and are setting up your App lock password
for the first time, you can follow the onscreen instructions to associate your fingerprint for easier
app unlocking.
Modify your App lock password: Touch
on the App lock screen and touch Change password
or Change password protection to modify your App lock password.
Enhanced Data Protection: Defend Your Privacy
Worried that your photos, bank account information, or other private data might get leaked if your
Phone is lost or stolen? Huawei Phones now feature security chips in addition to the combined
protection provided by the trusted root key and lock screen password. Whether your data is stored in
a microSD card or internal storage, it will receive the highest level of protection.
Stronger encryption and safeguards: Huawei Phones use a hardware key that cannot be used to
decrypt data when separated from the Phone. Based on the trusted root key, the encrypted
components are incorporated into the memory control chip to enhance the data protection capability
of the hardware. This works together with your lock screen password to protect your private data.
When you use PrivateSpace, Multi-user, encrypted microSD files, or other features to encrypt photos,
personal information, or other personal data, the only way your data can possibly be decrypted is if
the trusted root key, lock screen password, and security chip are simultaneously cracked.Not all
devices support microSD cards.
