PetChatz HD

Review Date 10/23/19

This product bills itself as a digital doggy daycare. It's got your two-way video chats and your treat dispenser and and a ringtone to let your dog know you are calling to check in. It's also got a scent diffuser for your pet's aromatherapy needs (seriously). And if you pay an extra subscription fee, it lets your dog watch DOGTV all day long. They say robots will replace us all. Doggy moms and dads are apparently now replaceable.

What could happen if something went wrong

This product does not meet our Minimum Security Standards because the only privacy policy we could find was one for the website. That means the device and the app it connects to do not have a privacy policy we could find. That's bad. And while unlikely, it's possible some terrible person could hack in, diffuse your pet's aromatherapy scents in the middle of the night causing a sneezing fit which leads to insomnia which causes you to fall asleep at the wheel on your way to work the next morning and you wreck your car. Or, you know, they could just spy on you when you're naked.
