Hitekno.com – Genshin Impact was officially launched on September 28, 2021 yesterday. This free game can be played on PlayStation 4, Android, iOS and of course PC.


Especially for the PC version, miHoYo has embedded an anticheat system for this open-world action RPG game. Of course, it is presented to protect the community from scammers.


The use of the system was criticized, however, and was even suspected of being spyware. Because it can read the player’s movements.


This is of course a concern, in particular the subject of data protection or the security of personal data is the focus. Likewise for this free game.


Fortunately, miHoYo didn’t stay silent and immediately updated the anticheat system used in the PC version of Genshin Impact in a short amount of time.

On the official website, this Chinese game developer gave his answer and explanation about the anticheat system they are using.


The previously used system can actually run in the background even if the Genshin Impact program or game has been turned off.


Mentioned when this anticheat system is running in the background. What is read, however, is only the information system, does not store or transmit any data to the outside.


Then after closing this free game, the system will still run to prevent the use of certain external plug-ins that are still working when the game is closed.


When miHoYo listened to the players’ input, she found that the mechanism they were using had caused privacy issues.

The developer of Genshin Impact has also prepared changes to its anti-cheat system. Which promises the system will stop running after closing the game.


When this free game is uninstalled, the security system is also not active in the background.


miHoYo also estimates it will take around 30 hours to work on this change. They also promise to strengthen the anti-cheat system to protect yourself from scammers.


In order to respect the privacy of Genshin Impact players, miHoYo promises not to access and use their personal information.
