FREDI Baby Monitor

Review Date 11/01/18

Baby cameras are nice. They let Moms and Dads keep an eye on the little one while they do other things. The flip side is, you have a camera in the room with your baby capturing all those special and not-so-special moments. That gets creepy real fast when the baby camera--as this one does--has a history of being easily hacked, uses a default password of "123", and doesn't have a privacy policy we could find from the manufacturer. Baby cameras are nice, this one doesn't seem to be.

What could happen if something went wrong

This product does a seemingly poor job protecting privacy and security. There is a lot of anecdotal evidence out there demonstrating these baby cameras are regularly and routinely hacked. Potentially, someone could access the video feed during private moments and spy on your family.
