Eufy markets and advertises its products along with the promise to keep “privacy in your own hands.” But they lied. Researchers and other public reporting confirmed that Eufy uploading local-only footage to the cloud without user authorization or knowledge.
Security researchers exposed the security flaw in local data being stored in the cloud. Despite Eufy’s claims to take “every step imaginable” to keep its users’ data private and local, it still uploads significant data – including video thumbnails and faces of people detected in the video, as well user identifier data – to cloud servers.
Users may opt to enable cloud storage in the Eufy’s Security app. Those who do so are aware that their data is stored or, at a minimum, passes through, the cloud. Problem is that the data is uploaded to cloud servers even when the cloud storage was disabled.
