I have recently bought a cheap £20GBP IP camera from an online store. It is branded as "aobo" but the logo was just stuck on and it appears to be a generic model which I have seen for sale under several different brands.
The camera uses a default username and password and is accessed using an app called "iSmartViewerPro". There appears to be nowhere in that app where you can change the username or password and once the app is connected to the camera it is possible to view and control the camera from anywhere (even when not on the same network).
I have connected to my router to get the local IP address for the camera and I have tried to access that address in my browser, I am presented with a login box :
The server ##.##.##.## is asking for your username and password, The server reports that this is from IPCamera Login.
I tried the default username on the camera but that is not accepted - so it appears that there would be a different login for the web interface.
So, my question - should I be sceptical about this camera? How am I meant to know that it is secure / or is there anything I can do to restrict access to it?
