AC5400, HomeCare and Privacy

Hi,

 

I'm considering buying the AC5400. before buying it, I would like to know more about HomeCare provided by trend-micro.

in particular, I would like to know if any personal informations are being send to TP-Link or Trend-micro by HomeCare (like browsing history, browsing habits, email attachements, files, ...)?

Other Competitor, providing similar wireless router, are sending personal information to trend-micro , which I don't think is right or needed at all.

I don;t mind paying for the service, as long as I know my privacy is safe.

 

I will be very happy if TP-Link support, or anyone who is using a AC5400 with homecare, can tell me more about the privacy policies of the homeCare feature.

 

Thanks!

Thanks Tony for your answer.

 

I undestnad the policy from TP-Link and the type of personnal data you are gathering.

However, I do not know anything about teh policy from Trend-micro/Homecare.

Those are only mention in TP-link privacy polocies as 'third parties service'.

am I correect to assume that HomeCare is a TPLink brand but considered as a third parties service?

 

When I will start using HomeCare, Will I need to accept another set of privacy policy/EULA specific to this service?

if so, do yuo have a description of those specifc policies?

 

Thanks!

HomeCare is a part of TP-Link, but the Trend Micro aspect of HomeCare is a part of it as far as the anti-virus, IPS, and quarentine service. Other aspects such as QoS or parental controls are different.

 

You are not met with a EULA, you start using the services like any of the other features typical in a router.
