So after tooling around for a while trying to figure out why my Media Tiles (Wyze Cams) no longer worked and eventually discovered that I could get it to work by logging in directly to the URL via browser then it would work in Action Tiles in that same browser but not being able to do it in the Action Tiles app because you can't just enter a URL directly into it and getting 95% of the way through opening a support ticket and then finding this handy Knowledge Based article https://support.actiontiles.com/knowledge-bases/8/articles/5508-media-tile-broken-due-to-url-with-userpasswordaddress-embedded-credentials explaining that Chrome, Android Webview (including Fully and ActionTiles android apps), and most Firefox browsers are now blocking embedded credentials. I get it, not ActionTiles fault, nothing they can do about it. Moving on...
Simple fix.... remove the login credentials from my web server on TinyCam Pro.... Problem solved right away.
However, now I'm a little worried....what risk am I exposing myself too? I'm a programmer by trade, but I'm not all that privy on internet security. My my understanding is that the Tiny Cam web server that's running on my Kindle is on my local network and traffic to it is blocked in my routers firewall. With out setting up port forwarding and explicitly allowing a connection from the outside world into my LAN, I really shouldn't have any concerns. Is that correct? I have no intention on opening up ports on my router as I have no need for remote access into Tiny Cam, I can just view the cameras in my Wyze app. So am I safe?
