Valued TrackingPoint Community,

Wired Magazine recently reported that information security consultants discovered software vulnerabilities in TrackingPoint guns. We worked with the consultants to verify their assessment and will provide you with a software update if necessary. Until then, please note the following: Since your gun does not have the ability to connect to the internet, the gun can only be compromised if the hacker is actually physically with you. You can continue to use WiFi (to download photos or connect to ShotView) if you are confident no hackers are within 100 feet.

We will keep you updated, and hope you continue to have exhilarating TrackingPoint shooting experiences!
