What is up with the data breach?

Yes I didn’t create it, I just let lastpass save it

Now that I think about it, I understand what’s happening. Sometimes if your login is on a subdomain, for example, it tries to add the entire domain. 90% of the time, that’s useful, but sometimes it’s not, and it tries to autofill my password somewhere where it wouldn’t be used. I’m guessing this would probably be coming from similar logic within LastPass. It’s not actually sending your passwords there, it’s just guessing that you might want it to be autofilled on that domain, basically.

That’s it exactly. Most password managers try to guess where the web link should be if they can’t determine it otherwise. They don’t actually send anything there, unless you choose “Open and Fill” or whatever your managers equivalent is.

I’ve asked the LastPass support staff to review this part of the thread to keep us from having to guess how their software works.

I’m pretty pissed off that i heard about this breach via the internet and STILL have not heard through Wyze in any form that it happened. I have been a loyal customer and love your products. I ordered the doorlock! (which i still have not received). I dont even know if I want to use it now that i’ve heard about this breach and the lack of any confirmation from Wyze. When did you plan on sending out the email… oh btw we left your information out there without any security for the world to see, this happened a few weeks ago, sorry we are just letting you know now.

This is a total lack of concern… and it may be the end of my relationship with Wyze.

you could have handled this in a much better way.

Wow, do you even read the posts?

He/she means reaching out to customers directly. The percentage of customers that come to the forum is probably very small. I’m surprised too that it’s taking them to figure out how to word the apology email that should be coming.

I would think it’s less about “wording” and more about making sure all the information is known and correct before they send something.

I would think that since they knew mostly info easily obtained by other means was "leaked " they admitted to it promptly then tried to get “The Suits” to agree.
Remember HOLIDAYS !

What is this “holiday” thing you speak of?

Festivus

Ah, I have heard of this “festivus” thing. It’s a way to avoid working is it not? :grinning:

Festivus is a secular holiday celebrated on December 23 as an alternative to the pressures and commercialism of the Christmas season. Originally created by author Daniel O’Keefe, Festivus entered popular culture after it was made the focus of the 1997 Seinfeld episode “The Strike”,[1][2] which O’Keefe’s son, Dan O’Keefe, co-wrote.

The non-commercial holiday’s celebration, as depicted on Seinfeld , occurs on December 23 and includes a Festivus dinner, an unadorned aluminum Festivus pole, practices such as the “Airing of Grievances” and “Feats of Strength”, and the labeling of easily explainable events as “Festivus miracles.”[3] The episode refers to it as “a Festivus for the rest of us”.

It has been described both as a parody holiday festival and as a form of playful consumer resistance.[4] Journalist Allen Salkin describes it as “the perfect secular theme for an all-inclusive December gathering”.[1]

Wyze is Kingsoft is Xiaomi is Mi is Huawei. All Chinese. All data mining in the USA. That’s why Huawei servers, routers and even phones have been banned in the US, and removed from European network infrastructure. NEVER NEVER NEVER link important data within any of these accounts! Copy this post they will likely take it down. (*And include me when you file the class action lawsuit!) References follow:



I have a lot more references but can only post two links.

Not alleged. FACT. Here’s the true skinny:

Shutting my cam down until it is safe again, and that`s a if.

Unplugging won’t help. You created a Wyze account. You gave them your name, email, address and phone number. ANYONE who cares to look can see it. It’s far worse than the Equifax data breach. They also have full access to all your Alexa, IFTTT and any other connected device usage. SURE HOPE YOU DON"T HAVE ALEXA ENABLED TO BUY STUFF!!!

, let`s see what happens.
