Parrot Bebop 2

If you're jealous of all those celebrities with paparazzi following them everywhere, this is the drone for you. Tap the "Follow Me' feature on this flying HD camera and this one pound (500g) drone will tag along with you on a hike, a bike, a climb, or a row. It's fast too! With a top speed of 37 mph (60 km/h), this drone can take on some fast winds so it's less likely to end up stuck up a tree. Unfortunately, it's also easily hackable and doesn't seem to meet our minimum security requirements.

Shares your information with 3rd parties for unexpected reasons

Nearly every company collects some kind of information on its users. That’s how the internet works. It’s how they use and care for this information that matters. You should know whether a company shares or sells your personal information to others and for what reasons. For the purpose of this report Mozilla determined that if according to a company’s privacy policy, it appeared to share data with third parties that could then use that information to market or advertise to customers, then we labeled it as “Shares information with third parties for unexpected reasons.” This does not mean your information is definitely used for these purposes. Simply that the policy leaves the possibility open your information could be used in this way.

What could happen if something went wrong

Unfortunately, Parrot drones are known to be easy to hack. In fact, a developer built a free tool anyone can download that autonomously seeks out, hacks, and wirelessly takes over Parrot drones within Wi-Fi distance to create their own army of zombie drones. Don't let your drone get taken into a zombie army!
