Huawei will block the use of all third-party launchers for EMUI 9 users. Huawei has sited that these third-party apps are causing user privacy and security issues. Also, its own interface comes embedded in all its smartphones used to introduce its own feature that is missing in Stock Android. It will not be possible for users to download and install launchers to customize the devices, but this will be applicable only to the smartphone activated in China.
According to Huawei, most third-party launchers come with pre-installed bloatware which hampers the smartphone’s performance. Also as a result of power consumption by such applications the smartphone can tend to get overheated.
There are other Chinese companies opposing the advertisement loaded on most of the third party launchers which makes it inconvenient and a threat to user privacy. This might not be easy for users to accept it as over the years Android has been popular because of the customization it allows compared to any other operating system around. Given the fact that privacy and security is also important it might turn out that Huawei decision is really good.
The restriction will be imposed only for EMUI 9 users ie specific to the Chinese market. Though the company says it to protect the privacy and security of its users, it might turn out a plow to keep the user’s data with themselves and share with the Chinese government.
