The Chinese military is developing software that will be able to automatically tip off authorities each time soldiers leak classified information via their smartphones, Chinese media reported.

According to China News, the program can be installed and uninstalled in automatic mode, restrict access to specific websites, set limits on communication hours and keep an eye on the use of sensitive words.

The program can also track each user’s phone number and mobile phone model.
