Check the label on the box or read online, or contact the manufacturer directly to see if the camera uses SSL/TLS, or some other industry standard, to protect your information in transit.If your camera uses SSL/TLS to protect your login credentials, the URL for the camera’s login page should begin with https (the “s” is for secure).If it doesn’t, your feed isn’t encrypted, and other people may be able to view it.Before you access your camera from a phone or mobile device, be sure that the security features are in place for mobile access.If you plan to allow several users to access feeds from the camera, consider a camera that allows for different levels of access.
But unless you want to share the feeds from your camera publicly, don’t do it. The log in page for your camera should have a URL that begins with https.
Instead, use your phone’s internet browser and go to your camera’s login page.
Look for https at the beginning of the URL so you know your information is encrypted.
Put simply, you could be hosting the world’s biggest open house!
When you’re shopping for an IP camera, you’ll want to put security features at the top of your list of priorities.
