India plans to test all phones sold in the country for spying and data security concerns

If reports are to be believed, the Indian government plans to crack down on smartphone makers to ensure phones sold in the country do not spy on its citizens.

The move to ensure the privacy and security of Indian data could lead government agencies to test all smartphones and apps installed on them before giving them the green light. Agencies can also request source codes for software used on these devices, the ET report says.
