Don’t help Ring build their surveillance grid.
The company has handed over video recordings from Ring doorbells without first notifying the owners in at least 11 instances so far this year, Amazon confirmed in a letter, marking the first time the company has admitted to handing over this type of information. The revelation comes as members of Congress scrutinize the tech giant for its privacy practices, and it raises questions about the ways in which law enforcement gains access to security footage.
