DJI gives its drones a curious 'offline' mode


DJI it is still in the news this week since, as has been commented by the company itself, apparently its drones have been equipped in a curious way 'offline'which allows your unmanned aerial vehicles stop sending photos and videos from the camera to company servers or that more commonly known as'cloud'.

Basically what this new functionality does is that, once enabled by the user, since by default is disabled, the drone software will prevent the applications developed by the company itself from collecting user data such as photos, videos or data about the flight from being recorded.

Enabling mode offline DJI drones will not send any information to the servers of the Chinese company.

As stated in the statement created and published by DJI itself, this new mode has been developed in response to the rating as'dangerous' that he United States Army has performed on the drones of the Chinese company. In this way, government and corporate drone operators will not have to worry about the possible leakage of classified information They can handle their UAVs.

On the other hand, it is quite curious that on the one hand it is ensured that this measure has been developed as a new way of providing security to government and corporate entities that use their drones (in clear response to the United States Army in my opinion) while On the other hand, the company's spokesmen have not been slow to comment on this, that is, it is not in response to the United States Army, but its developers have been working on this for months. new mode 'offline'where the drones do not send their information to the servers that the company has in the United States, China and Hong Kong.
