Sky Viper Journey

Drones are super fun. Until you lose one or it gets stuck in a tree. This flying camera drone has a built-in auto-pilot feature to save you from yourself. If your drone loses the signal with your phone or the battery drops low, auto-pilot will take over and send this little guy back to you. Pretty handy. Speaking of hands, it also has a feature where if you take your hands off the controller, the drone will come to a complete stop in mid-air. A drone for people who aren't very good at flying drones! Unfortunately, it's also easily hackable and doesn't seem to meet our minimum security requirements.

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.

What could happen if something went wrong

This drone uses an unencrypted Wi-Fi connection through an app on a smartphone. Hackers who are in physical proximity to the drone can gain access to the drones live video feed and any stored videos or images on the device. While the hacker can't take control of the drone, they could infect the toy with malware.
