No security system needs to log your height and weight. And yet, Wyze does, along with your birthday, gender, and location. Perhaps that wouldn’t be so concerning if Wyze hadn’t suffered multiple security scandals in the past five years. Read our full privacy report below.

Privacy Update: In September 2023, multiple Wyze users were able to view other users’ camera feeds.1 The event didn’t affect Wyze sensors, but it did raise questions about the company’s ability to manage user data.
