r/technology – Ring Refuses To Say How Many Users Had Video Footage Obtained By Police – Slashdot


This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 71%. (I’m a bot)


Ring will now let its police partners publicly request video footage from users through its Neighbors app.

The change ostensibly gives Ring users more control when police can access their doorbell footage, but ignores privacy concerns that police can access users’ footage without a warrant.

The report leaves out context that most transparency reports include: how many users or accounts had footage given to police when Ring was served with a legal demand? When reached, Ring declined to say how many users had footage obtained by police.
