I was pretty curious when a friend recently sent me an email with this as the subject:

Nanny Cam Hacked!

Most of the hidden cameras we review here at Nanny Cam Reviews are simple, do-it-yourself cameras – everything is handled by you, the owner, and nobody else is involved in recording or managing those recordings.

But there are companies who specialize in helping you record and back up the recordings from your nanny cams. And if you use a company like this, be very careful – as a couple recently found out, it seems they can be hacked rather easily.

Unfortunately, the company they used isn’t listed in that article. But if you use a company similar to this, be sure to do your homework and find out everything you can about how they store the data and the security measures they have in place.

Personally, I think the easiest, and safest, thing to do is use a nanny cam that is completely self contained, and doesn’t require any outside help to record. It just takes all the risk out of it.
