Ring Criticized for Sharing Customer Videos | Avast

Amazon Ring shares customer videos

Ring has caught on with homeowners everywhere, and the doorbell camera is a common sight on doorsteps across the country, which is why Amazon purchased the company for one billion dollars. But Ring has been criticized for poor security practices and potential abuse of sensitive customer information. Sources claim that Ring granted its Ukraine-based R&D team full access to every customer Ring video ever created. In addition, the source claims engineers and executives had access to certain customer live feeds, despite the fact that there was no reason for them to have this permission. A Ring spokesperson denies that access was ever granted, though several sources assert it was.
