Topic obsolete! See Ring Doorbell App

Great! It looks like Ring believe that no news is bad news and all news is good news…

The EFF alleges that they have found out that Ring is passing on user data to marketing companies. Of course it is, this is SOP for the current century.

Facebook is “alerted when the app is opened and upon device actions such as app deactivation after screen lock due to inactivity,” according to the EFF. The antisocial network also learns your time zone, device model, language preferences, screen resolution, and gets a unique identifier that enables it to connect and track the data down to your individual phone.

Thanks, didn’t see that one. Changed the topic title.

Can we merge threads?

We mere mortals cannot, but @Leo can.

Seems it’s not recommended anyway after a bit of googling.
