Hi SecurityChecker. Interesting name you have, given this problem: Deepin is not secure. It makes unencrypted connections to known Chinese trackers via its app store without user consent. This means someone in China is probably monitoring your system. See the links above for more information.

If you're so very madly in love with the desktop environment, you should know that it's possible to install it on most other Linux distros (e.g. Antergos, Manjaro, Ubuntu, etc.). Some distros even have a version with it directly for distribution (e.g. Manjaro). At least that way you'd have a secure OS underneath the GUI. However, I'd stick well away from anything Deepin-related.

To this date no one has proven that Deepin spies on its users. Those "unencrypted connections" were app store analytics that didn't send more than some basic parameters like screen size, browser and other user agent information.

Deepin is quite slow in updating even the most important packages. Not good for my usage. Might be good for you...

It's based in China, so not sure it can be trusted due to current news. Not to be political, but just saying, be careful what you use.

Beware! Spyware!

The app store of Deepin 15.5 makes unencrypted connections to known Chinese trackers, which is a serious security and privacy risk. This occurs approximately 20 minutes after boot-up without warning and without the user's consent.
