Go to reply no.
The Analytics process that always is in background  leaves an Analytics.apk (65kb more or less) in com.miui.analytics/cache inside "Android" folder. Do you know what's the purpose of this file? Can I safely remove it?

Here's official statement from XiaoMi.

Official Statement From Xiaomi

A Xiaomi spokesperson has reached out The Hacker News with an official statement for the claims made by Thijs Broenink about a backdoor that let hackers, as well as Xiaomi itself, to secretly install any application on the millions of affected devices, saying:

    "AnalyticsCore is a built-in MIUI system component that is used by MIUI components for the purpose of data analysis to help improve user experience, such as MIUI Error Analytics."

Although the company did not deny or comment anything about its ability to automatically install any app onto your device in the background without your interaction, the spokesperson has clarified that hackers would not be able to exploit this "self-upgrade" feature.

    "As a security measure, MIUI checks the signature of the Analytics.apk app during installation or upgrade to ensure that only the APK with the official and correct signature will be installed," the representative added.

    "Any APK without an official signature will fail to install. As AnalyticsCore is key to ensuring better user experience, it supports a self-upgrade feature. Starting from MIUI V7.3 released in April/May, HTTPS was enabled to further secure data transfer, to prevent any man-in-the-middle attacks."

I am not sure but I think it processes system count such as uptime,  how many times a app has been opened?  And etc
