Blink Indoor Privacy Report
The Blink Indoor is a key component of the Blink security camera system, providing wireless indoor security. Like most wireless cameras, however, the Blink Indoor is not invulnerable to hacking. That’s why Blink offers automatic software updates, encryption, and two-step verification to protect the Blink Indoor.
Still, Blink does collect and keep more data from its apps than necessary. It logs audio and video, tracks location, and keeps IP address and device information of users. That kind of behavior could undermine users’ privacy, especially if a data breach occurs.
