Consumer Reports has sent a letter to 25 manufacturers of IoT cameras with a call to improve their security.“In response to multiple reports of hacks and unauthorized access of smart cameras and doorbells, Consumer Reports writes to urge your company to raise the standard of security for your connected camera, doorbell, or security system,” wrote the company.“We request clarification on the steps you are taking to prevent hacks and unauthorized access to these cameras and the systems that underlie them.
IoT cameras are one of the worst offenders when it comes to security. Given that cameras are essentially an eye into your premises; they’re among the devices consumers expect to be most secure.
