Petsafe Smart Pet Feeder

Review Date 10/23/19

Got a fat cat? How about a puppy that likes to eat too fast. Or are you just never home at dinner time? This WiFi connected pet feeder could help you out. Use an app on your phone to tell it to dish out a small portion for your fat cat so it doesn't overeat. Use the Slow Eat function to portion out a little at a time for that fast eater. Schedule meals or just hit Feed Now and your furry friend gets to chow down with a tap of your finger. Hunting and gathering has come so far.

What could happen if something went wrong

Unfortunately, this product raises some red flags. The company didn't take the time to get back to us with answers to our privacy and security questions. They also do 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. However, neither the device not the app access things like a camera, microphone, or location tracking, so really, unless the WiFi is insecure and could open your home to hacking (which is a possibility), what you really have to worry about is if someone is accessing your pets feeding schedule.
