I investigated the inner workings of #Xiaomi's Mint Browser and summarized it in a blog article. In short: it's as bad as the Forbes article suggests, and even worse. That browser is spyware, exfiltrating an enormous amount of data.

If you add appropriate “proofs” to your social sites (like Keybase) then add links to them to your OpenPGP key (details at: https://github.com/wiktor-k/openpgp-proofs#openpgp-proofs) and push to https://keys.openpgp.org/ it will work transparently and display your key here: https://metacode.biz/openpgp/key#0x8945ED09AE2017A85E152BF87A8B52EC67E09AAF

Wirre Irrationale. Ich habe beschlossen, dieses Konglomerat von rechtslinksrechts braunesoterischen Angst vor Nanoroboter spritzenden Neue Welt Ordnung und so weiter Gerüchte-Überzeugten und Dystopie-Theoretikern als genau das zu bezeichnen was sie sind. Wirre Irrationale.
