I suggest that the OWLR app...

Connect using HTTPS

I do not see it clearly anywhere, but the feature to use HTTPS instead of HTTP would be great.

        Still waiting on iOS support...

      • NicolaNicola commented  · 

        what about iOS ?

      • SvenSven commented  · 

        If you're looking for features to bring in revenue, this seems like the top choice. I've seen a lot of other camera applications on android that have a "pro" version, which is paid, that adds ssl/tls support. I'd buy it - as long as it's reasonable ;)

        This is the only feature missing from the application that I need to feel comfortable adding port forwarding and remote access.

        This should really be the #1 priority in this day and age. Owlr is by far the best app, but I just can't use it without SSL. I'm really surprised this is taking so long.

        Will have to switch to alternatives until this feature is implimented.

        To echo below comments - this is mandatory and should be #1 priority. Will not be using this product until it can be considered secure.

        what's the status of this?

        adding SSL is mandantory. you can't connect via some public wlan to your home without SSL. you really don't won't others to view into your rooms ...

      • FrankFrank commented  · 

        Agreed with the previous posts that SSL is definitely needed for cam access.

        ETA please? That will decide whether I should go ahead with some other Foscam viewer app or wait until this feature is released. I only installed but have not used your app because of the lack of this feature. The app looks polished and I would love to start using it, but there is not way I will let my credentials travel unencrypted over the internet.

        +1 for adding HTTPS. I won't use this app remotely until it supports it.

        For those of you who crave security when viewing... A VPN will do the trick. I purchased a VPN capable router and enable VPN on my iPhone when viewing remotely. It's a bit more complicated but I know some routers like Netgear Nighthawk R7000 provide a really simple VPN platform. Just a thought.

        I second the need for HTTPS - I am not comfortable having admin credentials to my cameras transversing over the internet in the clear.

      • NicolaNicola commented  · 

        that's avery important feature, what is the ETA ?

        When connecting to a camera over a WAN connection it is imperative to have a secure encrypted connection. The current external connection appears to be insecure.
