Incorrect OnePlus 8/8 Pro beta update wipes some phones by accident, but there’s a workaround

Not too long ago, OnePlus released the third Open Beta for the 8 and 8 Pro, bringing various bug fixes for the Ambient Display and Zen Mode and making Canvas compatible with the new always-on Ambient Display. Now a bug has surfaced that deletes user data from some people who have joined the beta program.

This warning notification is actually a feature only supposed to be available for Nest Aware subscribers, Google's paid home security service. As it turns out, the rollout to other users was unintentional and is no longer available.
