    Do the cameras/NVRs have encryption of any type when being viewed from the mobile or desktop applications? The web browser only uses HTTP, so no encryption is being used there. If not, that means the mobile app would be passing the username/password over clear text each time it logs in.

    Just following up. I’d still like to know more about the encryption, if there is any at all. Encryption is very important so that others are not able to easily hack the cameras.

    Can we please get HTTPS added at least? Most very basic and cheap systems have this protocol built in. Thanks!

    HTTPS has always been used. For example, if your camera has IP of 192.168.177.101, you should input https://192.168.177.101 and then press Enter.

    There you go.

    They use their own https credentials but anyway it is https, isn’t it?

    Thanks for the response Cracky.

    However, when I try to use HTTPS, I get this:

    I tried Internet Explorer and Chrome. Is there a setting I missed somewhere? In looking at the protocols supported by the NVR, HTTPS was not listed. I’m not sure if the next screenshot will show properly or be stretched, but I’m showing that under my “Network Advanced” tab on the Reolink desktop software, the HTTPS Port is set to ‘0’ and is grayed out so I can’t modify it.

    This still doesn’t address the concerns with the desktop/mobile apps since it’s very likely they are not using any type of encryption to hand off the credentials during the login process. Thanks again.

    That’s true for NVR system. Tried here and failed. I’m gonna report this to them and make them fix this. I think they will.

    Great, thanks a lot. Please report back if you hear of any changes. On another note, do you know if there is a way to get email alerts when certain threads receive new replies? Currently I just have to go back and check every thread I’m active in to see if anyone responded.

    Sorry to say, there is no alerting system for threads with the current posting system.  It would be a nice feature and it seems they are always implementing new options.  Recently I have started to see “New” by threads I have not read yet.  It is a start.

    I would like to know the answer to this as well…

    Hello Nick,

    For the time being, we support logging into IPC in HTTPS and NVR in HTTP.

    When accessing your Reolink devices via Reolink Client software for PC, and Reolink App for your phone, we use private encryption mode.

    Your data will be safe. You don’t have to have the worry of username/password over clear text.

    Thank you so much.

    I am also pretty worried about this, encryption should be a force of any company that is bring new services out.

    Look at the issue of the massive bot network that happened (last year i think!)

    On the Argus if i type the ip address in what is the port? As the above member said it just refuse the connection?

    Hi, For Reolink Argus camera, it uses UID rather than IP address to login. So if you try to login the camera using IP Address, you will fail to get logged in.
