BlackVue dashcams share cars’ mapped GPS locations, stream video feeds and audio
No privacy by design. Thanks to default cloud settings, BlackVue dashcam customers may be live-streaming video and audio from their vehicles, as well as having their location mapped.
Just as some people are unknowingly streaming live video from security cams in their homes, some are also unknowingly live-streaming video from their cars. They have made the video feed from their front and rear dashcams, as well as the mapped GPS location of the vehicle – the speed it is going or if it is parked – and even audio from inside the vehicle, available to the public.
BlackVue comes with a Cloud Viewer which allows owners to see a live view of their car. However, thanks to a sketchy registration process, that live view is available to the public. Users are opted-in by default to share the precise GPS location of their vehicles on a map, as well as a stream live video feeds of the front and rear cameras.
