Ring doorbell sends private data to third-parties without user consent, says EFF

According to the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), the Ring app contains third-party trackers, which share customers’ personally identifiable information (PII), including names, IP addresses and mobile networks. The data is shared with five companies, including Facebook and Google, even if users don’t have an account with them. Ring said it limits the amount of data it shares.

Upon more reading, it looks like it's the app, not the doorbell itself. Not sure if that makes any difference, though.

a private surveillance state... oh great PMC, PSC now have corporate eyes as well as guns. Can't believe the world is overrun with private death cult spying and killing engines that are unaccountable to public interests and coalitions. A Brave and Crappy New World.
