That is indeed a little odd. As you might know, NTP stands for "Network Time Protocol", i.e. is for synchronizing time. So your devices shouldn't be reaching out to random destinations. The good news is that no other traffic (especially not your private data, like log events and videos) go through that.


I will of course be reporting this to our dev team.
