Now throw away all your Eufy cameras

what you need to know

  • Eufy has begun removing and changing the wording of its own privacy and security policies from its website.
  • The company is yet to fully address the security issues that were identified over two weeks ago.
  • Eufy previously had camera footage data breaches in May 2021, further compounding issues with the company’s products.
