I'm Shocked that China's MANDATED Olympic App Is Not Secure

I mean it only contains medical info and passport details. China’s Olympics App Is Horribly Insecure

China is mandating that athletes download and use a health and travel app when they attend the Winter Olympics next month. Citizen Lab examined the app and found it riddled with security holes.

The "key findings" are listed at the link, which I take it means that there are more problems. Here is one of the issues.

MY2022 includes features that allow users to report “politically sensitive” content. The app also includes a censorship keyword list.

Because you're an athlete. You can't talk about Xinjiang or Tibet or anything else that might upset the Chinese masters.
