Finland's ombudsman to investigate any Nokia-branded phones data breaches

  • Ombudsman Reijo Aarnio told Reuters he would assess whether there were any breaches 
  • Nokia-branded mobile phones are developed by a separate Finnish company HMD Global

Finland's data protection ombudsman said on Thursday he would investigate whether there was any data breach by Nokia-branded phones after Norway's public broadcaster reported that it had proof the mobiles had sent data to China.

Ombudsman Reijo Aarnio told Reuters he would assess whether there were any breaches that involved "personal information and if there has been a legal justification for this."

Nokia-branded mobile phones are developed by a separate Finnish company HMD Global. Nokia declined to comment and HMD Global was not immediately available.
