Industry Leader Reaffirms Commitment to Safeguarding the Privacy of its Users

SAN JOSE, Calif. and LAS VEGAS, Nev. — Jan. 7, 2020 — Arlo Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: ARLO), the #1 internet connected camera brand , announced today the introduction of the Arlo Privacy Pledge, underscoring its long-standing promise that puts users’ privacy first. Since day one of Arlo’s inception, Arlo’s products and services have been designed with an inherent commitment to protect and connect people to the things they love most, which Arlo believes includes a user’s right to privacy of their personal information. Arlo’s Privacy Pledge can be viewed now at Arlo.com/PrivacyPledge.

“Recent news reports have called some companies into question surrounding their real-world behavior versus their stated privacy policy,” said Matt McRae, CEO. “At Arlo, we believe privacy is crucial and central to the concept of a security solution. As such, our only business is providing security and peace of mind. We don’t capture user data for advertising or sell it to third parties, we don’t view or keep data without consent, and we don’t volunteer user data to law enforcement. These are standards that were established since the launch of our first Arlo camera, and we’re proud to reaffirm our user privacy commitment with the Arlo Privacy Pledge.”

Details surrounding the commitments outlined in Arlo’s Privacy Pledge include:

  • OWNERSHIP – Your personal data belongs to you and you alone.
    • We don’t sell your data.
