Ring Revises Policy: Halts Law Enforcement Access to Doorbell Camera Footage

Amazon's subsidiary, Ring, has announced a significant policy change: it will no longer permit law enforcement agencies to access user-recorded footage from its doorbell cameras. This decision marks a departure from Ring's previous stance and was announced via a blog post on Wednesday. Previously, police departments could use a feature in Ring's Neighbors app to request video recordings from users' doorbell cameras. This tool facilitated the process for law enforcement to gather video evidence from Ring devices in local neighborhoods.
