With tons of advantages, the technology brings its own share of disadvantages as well. A new report from The Intercept claims Ring, Amazon’s smart doorbell has given the access to its employees to watch live footage from customers’ cameras.
As per the reports, Ring engineers and executives were given access to ‘unfiltered, round-the-clock’ feeds of some users’ footage. Shockingly, the employees had access to a folder on Amazon’s S3 cloud storage service, which included a list of ‘every video created by every Ring camera around the world.’
However, the spokesperson of the Ring said that there’s no threat to the personal information of the customers and they will take customers personal information quite seriously.
