The phrase "Cloud Driver" raises a red flag right there. There's no reason for a keyboard to send or receive data on the Internet.

China that costs half as much (or less) as the mechanical keyboards from better known companies. Multiple gadgets that come from China seem to have either poor security or privacy

Thank you China...again...

I couldn't agree more!
Keyboard and "Cloud" do not belong together. EVER EVER EVER!!!!

The only things I save to the cloud are items that wouldn't be devastating to have the entire world seeing it.
Cloud = on a billboard for the world to see
If you think about cloud security like that you won't have issues when the company gets hacked or a rouge employee decides to do something stupid.

This reminds me of a IP camera i ordered from aliexpress, it was sitting on my desk for 2 months, turned on, was just testing it, etc... After 2 months I noticed in my router administration web interface, that the camera had opened 2 UPnP ports on my router, and is communicating via UDP to some chinese addresses. Now someone in china has probably a picture of me watching porn w4nk1ng off ...

udp communication
58.96.170.32:32100 123.57.136.155:32100 54.183.36.158:32100


upnp ports
Destination Proto. Port range Redirect to Local port
ALL UDP 6600 192.168.1.162 6600
ALL UDP 6602 192.168.1.162 6602
ALL TCP 1935 192.168.1.162 1935

This used to be a reputable website for hardware reviews. Now you have clickbait titles, clickbait ads you can't remove. And clickbait articles in which the reviewer did not even bother to verify any facts they just copied from reddit. Guess this is the dailymail of the pc world now.

Isn't IDG's PC World the Daily Mail of the PC World? I haven't really read any news on any IDG sites for years, but last I checked they definitely were. :)
That said, no one should have to remind a tech blog about fact checking when they're running a story like this.
