iOS permissions are a privacy concern

The iOS app requires full access to the full and entire photo library in order to download or share event videos. This is a major privacy concern and I am absolutely unwilling to grant this level of access to my private photos. Is there a way to contact the dev team at Wyze to submit a request that this access requirement be lowered to “allow access to selected photos” or at minimum, remove this requirement to share the videos.

You can vote for the wishlist item, which is reviewed by the Devs. If this item does not represent what you want, then do a search for what does. If there is no wishlist item for what you want, then submit one: :slight_smile:

You actually don’t have to give the wyze app full access , you can choose selected photos.

Go to the wyze app in your iPhone settings and choose “select photos”


Unfortunately, I have done this and the app is specifically requesting all photos access. Selected photos isn’t good enough.

Whenever I want to include a video or screenshot to a log , the app asks me this and I always just click on keep current selection

I just get this pop-up.

Selected photos has not worked for me in 1.5-2 years. It changed with an app change and I’ll see if that old post is still around.

Like you, I refuse to give Wyze access to my entire iOS photo library. I don’t know what they’re going to do when I grant this permission. Maybe nothing, maybe something. This is probably disclosed in small print somewhere, but it should be prominently explained when changes to their app are that significant. As a workaround, as clunky as it is, I record my screen when playing back a video. I can then share it with whomever I like without abiding by Wyze’s highly problematic invasion-of-privacy request.
