Valorant has an ‘always on’ anti-cheat system that is detected as malware on your computer and it reportedly sends sensitive information to China.

The U.S. developer best known for their hit MOBA game League of Legends just released a 5v5 first-person shooter game that seems like a mixture of Overwatch and Counter-Strike. However, their anti-cheat system seems very suspicious.

Riot Games are owned by Tencent, a highly controversial Chinese owned multi-billion dollar company. That makes the new malware found hidden inside the games purported ‘anti-cheat’ system a whole lot more suspicious.

From day one people were reporting strange lag, low frames, and crashes while playing Valorant even on high-end PCs. This resulted in many popular streamers abandoning the game.

The problems even persisted once Valorant was closed. The game’s ‘anti-cheat’ runs even though the game is not, and people have claimed that his effected other applications running on their computers.

Anti-virus software has even detected that Valorant’s anti-cheat system is malware and that it may be sending sensitive information from your system.

In March, 2019, the Japanese Times reported that people should be very cautious when purchasing or downloading anything owned by the Chinese conglomerate.

Tencent — the Chinese firm that owns WeChat, and QQ, two of the world’s most widely used social media applications — facilitates Chinese government censorship and surveillance both inside and outside of China, JT wrote.

Riot Games’ Valorant, China owned Tencent, allegedly uses malware ‘always on’ anti-cheat software that spies on you.

The report highlights how the CCP used Tencent’s software to spy on a Muslim man who was travelling to China from Mecca, Saudi Arabia, and detained and interrogated him for three whole days when he arrived in mainland China.

“It is strongly advised that you do not use any software programmed by any of Tencent owned developers if you live outside of China unless it is absolutely essential to your daily life,” Sarah Cook warned.

Riot Games claimed that their ‘anti-cheat’ software does not scan your computer and does not eat up your system’s resources despite contradicting reports.

People should think twice before installing the popular new 5v5 first-person shooter, Valorant and wait for a thorough investigation of the anti-cheat software used in the game.

Are you still going to play Valorant knowing that it may be spying on you and sending your data to the Chinese government? Let us know in the comments below.
