The coveted award was given by China Telecommunications Technology Labs, governed by the Ministry of Information and Industry Technology.
The award came as an official nod to China Daily app's protection of user data as the app immediately made itself compliant with the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) after it became enforceable in May.
Known for some of the strictest online privacy rules in the world, GDPR is designed to protect user data storage and usage, and to ensure that the user is in control of their data, rather than companies being in charge of user data.
