Account Security emails from Blink

At Blink, we take action to ensure your products are only accessed by authorized persons.

Personal Data protection
One way we protect your information is to hide your account details until you give permission for a support agent to have access.

Email confirmation
Another security action we take is sending you an email when important events take place.

Account security emails are sent from "no-reply@blinkforhome.com", they are authentic, and meant to provide peace of mind. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Blink Technical Support.

The following events send a message to your Account email address:

A new device logs into your Blink account – Any new phone or tablet accessing your Blink account generates an email describing the device.

Blink System deleted – The email includes the deleted system name.

Sync Module deleted – When a Sync Module is deleted, the email includes the Serial Number and the name of the system it was attached to.

Camera Deleted – When a camera is deleted, the email includes the name of the deleted camera and its serial number.

Account Deleted – When an Account is deleted, an email is sent to you describing this action.

Email Change – When an Account email address is changed, an email message is sent to the original address describing this action.

Forgot Password – "Forgot Password", is treated as a password reset request. When this action is initiated, an email is sent to your account containing a Password Update link that is valid for 24 hours only.

After Password Change – When your Account password change is completed, an email is sent to you describing this action.

New Account Creation – New user accounts created in the Blink app require an email verification process described below:
