To start, we’re taking every step imaginable to ensure your data remains private, with you.
Whether it’s your newborn crying for mom, or your victory dance after a game,your recorded footage will be kept private. Stored locally. With military-grade encryption. And transmitted to you, and only you.
That’s just the start of our commitment to protect you, your family, and your privacy.
But don’t just take our word for it….
Here at eufy, we’re not just all talk and no action.
The in-depth measures we take when handling your data have been recognized by the BSI (British Standards Institute), who awarded us with ISO27001 and ISO27701 certification.
Obtaining these certifications show our dedication to comply with the highest possible international data privacy laws such as GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and CCPA (California Consumer Privacy Act).
This means every facet of our technology and process that we adopt has been tested and proven to protect your data under EU and US law.
See below to discover how our 3 core technologies help us to achieve these standards.
For Your Eyes Only
Home is where your data belongs. With secure local storage, your private data never leaves the safety of your home, and is accessible by you alone.
All recorded footage is encrypted on-device and sent straight to your phone—and only you have the key to decrypt and watch the footage. Data during transmission is encrypted.
Our super-smart AI is built into every eufy device. It analyzes your recorded footage without the need to risk your privacy by sending it to the cloud.
Secure Storage | Plenty of Space
Thanks to its built-in 16GB eMMC, HomeBase securely stores up to 3 months of recordings right there on the device.
Video Authorization | Access in Your Hands
You have complete control over who has access to the live video stream and recordings. Only authorized users can view the recorded videos.
Anti-Theft Data Protection | Safe From Outside Sources
Even if someone were to steal the SD Card or HomeBase, the data onboard cannot be accessed through unrecognized mediums.
Two-Step Verification | Notified of New Devices
When a new device is trying to log into your account, a verification code will be sent to your phone or email that you have registered.
Account Exclusivity | Grant Access to Family and Guests
Only the primary owner of the account is able to grant permissions to new users.
Account Data Safety | Only For Those You Trust
Account exclusivity ensures your data will not be accessible to unauthorized users.
eufy records and stores videos locally when motion is detected by your device. If you subscribe to our cloud storage service, your videos are securely stored in the cloud and can be deleted at any time. Your videos will be permanently deleted from our servers according to the storage period on your plan.
All of your videos can be downloaded locally into a separate file to your device. There is no online link available to any video. Please make sure that you only share videos with those that you trust.
You can access and view your stored recordings, download them, or delete them via the eufy app.
We are committed to keep your personal data safe. Your video clips will be securely stored locally by default. Each clip will be encrypted with AES by your eufy device. You need to use Eufy software and your account to decrypt the clips for viewing. No one else can access or read this data. If you choose to store the clips in the cloud, we encrypt data between eufy devices and AWS using TLS and SRTP (Secure Real Time Protocol). The clips stored in AWS will also be encrypted by AWS for further data protection.
You’re in control of who you grant video access to. You can add Shared Users to your account, who will then be able to view and download video recordings. You can also download the clip file to your phone locally and then share the file to your family or friends via your choice of messenger app.
Shared Users allow you to share device access with family, roommates, and others without sharing your login credentials. Shared Users can answer and receive alerts, view video recordings, and modify their personal alert settings. For the higher level Admin sharing permission, they can delete videos and change device settings.
If you are having issues with your device or video recordings, you can request assistance from the eufy Security app’s Help menu or the eufy community. Depending on the issue, eufy may ask you for permission to view your video recordings in connection with troubleshooting the issue. You can choose whether or not to provide eufy with limited, short-term access to view your video recordings solely for the purpose of troubleshooting issues. Your video recordings will not be viewed, shared, or used by eufy for any other purpose.
A small number of video recordings are viewed by our research and development team to improve eufy’s products, services, and technology. These video recordings are either from customers who have made them publicly available (by donating via the eufy Security app), or from customers, team members, and their friends and family who have given us explicit permission to use them for this purpose (which they may revoke at any time).
In response to legal requests from law enforcement agencies, we will not, without the customer’s consent, disclose video recordings unless it is necessary to comply with the law or if there is an emergency involving imminent danger of death or serious physical injury to a person. We object to overbroad or otherwise inappropriate demands as a matter of course. Unless prohibited from doing so or eufy has clear indication of illegal conduct in connection with the use of eufy products or services, eufy notifies customers before disclosing content information.
No. eufy team members cannot activate and view live streams from your eufy devices.
No. We do not sell your information to third parties.
