Arlo Pro 2 Privacy Report

Privacy Rating
Arlo Pro 2  - Product Header Image

The Arlo Pro 2 is not an ideal choice for privacy-minded individuals, given that Arlo collects a ton of data about its users. Arlo’s privacy policy explicitly says that the company logs users’ personal information, including interest and hobbies, age, and gender. That’s a bit too much especially for a security camera company. In addition, only those living in California, EEA, and Switzerland can opt to delete their infromation from Arlo’s logs.
