In the digital environment of Internet, data, as a new production factor, plays a vital role in resource allocation. Countries represented by the EU have established data portability. Our country has also introduced the concept of data rights in the latest legislation level, to better break the head of the data monopoly and information lock, protect the legitimate rights of citizens. This paper discusses the history and development of data portability from the establishment of GDPR in European Union, and analyzes the connotation of data portability in the Personal Information Protection Law of China, and the benefits brought about by the implementation of the data portability. How to balance the relationship between individuals and data owners to form a virtuous circle, and how to rationalize the legal theory are the next steps to be considered and solved.
