New LED policy puts my property and safety at risk by informing trespassers whether my camera is on. 0 Recommended Answers 11 Replies 38 Upvotes
I hate the new mandatory recording indicator that Google has deployed in the name of "privacy". This new mandatory feature actually sacrifices my privacy and security. The new policy, pushed to my device without my consent, mandates that a recording light always be on anytime the camera is recording. This gives every criminal and trespasser a visual indicator as to whether it is safe to break in. I hate, hate, hate this new policy. This feature should have remained optional. Now I have to replace an expensive and previously functional product because Google has deliberately broken it and turned it into a security risk. I am very angry about this forced invasion of privacy.
