Ring Keeps Doubling Down On Creepiness

Ring (Amazon) just can’t help running over folks privacy. First, they let law enforcement know where every camera is in use, then they coached law enforcement on how to get user videos without using a warrant, and now there is evidence they were rewarding users for reporting suspicious activities. I think the “intent” might be good, but it certainly has me not wanting a Ring camera anywhere near my home or business.

Ring helped people form private ‘Digital Neighborhood Watches’ where they report ‘suspicious activity’ in exchange for free Ring products and discounts, according to a presentation obtained by Motherboard.
