Hi everybody! I've heard that nowadays WiFi is not an absolutely secure connection and it can be hacked. I also heard that there is a new camera on the market and I am afraid of being spotted by it. Can I secure myself from it?

Dropcam HD WiFi monitoring camera is the small webcam that is powered by USB. It provides HD quality video and night vision ability. In addition it supports two-way audio and DVR-style recording ability as an additional option. And, by the way, the access to this web camera is always on and it can be accessed by means of iPhone, web browser or Android-based personal device.
If Dropcam HD WiFi monitoring camera will spot you, you can't prevent it from recording captured data to the PC it is connected to. Also it is worth mentioning that live streaming video of this webcam is streamed through the cloud service and it is encrypted. But to connect with mobile devices like iPhone or Android-based smartphone this monitoring camera uses WiFi connection. The price of Dropcam HD WiFi monitoring camera is $149 and additional $9.95 per month if you will decide to use the DVR-style recording ability.
Thus in order to not let the video with you pictured in it spread across personal mobile devices via WiFi connection you can block Dropcam HD WiFi monitoring camera and secure yourself from its watchful eye at most.
