When multi-device companion identity authentication is enabled, users can unlock the phone with the help of facial recognition and a special check, and special checks ensure the user’s watch and phone connection.
Additionally, Harmony OS manages user data by category and protects devices by level by setting specific security thresholds for super devices.
Only devices that meet the strictest security requirements can access data in accordance with their security level, ensuring that users can use multi-device support features with peace of mind.
Harmony OS applications go through rigorous testing to ensure a safe experience in development, release, installation and a clean ecosystem.
These days, we are surrounded by more and more smart devices and are now connected to everything in the world, said Richard Yu, executive director and CEO of Huawei Consumer Business Group.
We are all part of a fully connected world. We look forward to working with many partners and developers to build a growing Harmony OS ecosystem and provide better experiences, products and services to our customers around the world.
