Blink Mini Privacy Report

Privacy Rating
6.1
/10
Blink Mini

The Blink Mini is a well-encrypted security camera, and while it logs camera footage, it lets users decide which video clips to keep. Unfortunately, the Blink Mini also logs a flurry of data about its users, including their names, email addresses, and phone numbers. It’s also not great that they keep track of the IP addresses and other data related to the device used to access their websites and services.
