Your Nest Cam can help you keep an eye on your home from anywhere in the world, but it’s more comforting to watch your stuff look its best. If you want someone to check in from time to time, you can share your Nest Cam channel with a simple, password-protected link.

To create the link you use to share your Nest camera, go to the Nest website or open the app on your phone (the steps are the same for both). Click on your camera feed.

Click the gear icon in the top right corner.

Click the Camera Sharing button in the Settings menu.

Here you can choose whether to password protect your Nest Cam channel. If you choose «Share Public», your feed will not be published anywhere, but anyone with the link will be able to view it. For most people, you’ll probably want to select Share Password. Then click Accept and Share Password.

Then enter a password that is at least eight characters long. Make sure it’s strong enough that you can remember.

On the last screen, you can copy and share the link to your Nest Cam. If you need to change your camera password or stop camera sharing, you can do so on this screen now or in the future.

This will allow other users to see your live camera feed, but they won’t be able to see your video history or any clips you’ve saved.
