Not content with having the ScoMo knowing your movements via the Covid-Safe App? Why not give Jeff Bezos access to all of your visitors too!

    Lol you joke, but I know people who object to the COVIDsafe app but have full smart home setups. Ironic!

      Bezos is the last person the fools buying this should worry about, Ring grants access to law enforcement ie. the government, without warrants. It's literally Big Brother.

      Oh and anybody else LMAO

        Yup. If you get any internet connected surveillance, I'd be strategically angling the cameras to not be recording living areas, bedrooms etc. Just point them at things like courtyards, entrances etc that people can technically walk up and see into anyways.

        Did you even read the article?! Is a US based article, and reliant on users giving public access to the feeds. Any hacking is due to user not setting up correctly.

          Yes

          “Ring does not make it clear to its users that this information is being shared with third parties nor who those companies are. It also doesn’t allow them to opt out of the data collection”

        or, you know… read the article
        Users opt in to have their streams shared with the 'neighbors' section, which essentially is people opting in to share their streams

          You and Rumbaar are confusing two different levels of access. One is where the owner opts in to grant access to others. The other, is included in the terms of service that a user automatically agrees to.

          by purchasing or using our Products and Services, you give Ring the right, without any compensation or obligation to you, to access and use your Content for the limited purposes of providing Services to you, protecting you, improving our Products and Services, developing new Products and Services, and as otherwise set forth in our Privacy Notice.

          The below paragraph refers to the opt-in option:

          Additionally, by electing to publicly share your Content via our Services to other users or the general public , in addition to the license granted above, you give Ring the right, without any compensation or obligation to you, to access and use your Content and related location information for the purposes of publicly sharing such recordings and information with current and future users and allowing those users to comment on the Content.

          More about automatic granting of access:

          In addition to the rights granted above, you also acknowledge and agree that Ring may access, use, preserve and/or disclose your Content to law enforcement authorities, government officials, and/or third parties, if legally required to do so or if we have a good faith belief that such access, use, preservation or disclosure is reasonably necessary to:

          (a) comply with applicable law, regulation, legal process or reasonable preservation request; (b) enforce these Terms, including investigation of any potential violation thereof; (c) detect, prevent or otherwise address security, fraud or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property or safety of Ring, its users, a third party, or the public as required or permitted by law.

      Or people who have full Xiaomi setups for anything wi-fi. But damned if they are going to let the Australian government see a couple of borked BT handshakes.

        So everything else internet bad, but Covid app good? I guess unique bluetooth device mac addresses and interactions with google play services etc don't matter? And also the notion of an entire population perceiving downloading a govt tracking app a good thing to 'flatten the curve' and 'get back to your old life', therefore would be more welcoming of any further measures they decide to impose down the track. Pretty dumb.

          Yes you have drawn a pretty dumb conclusion, agreed.

            @serpserpserp: lmao sorry I was mistaken in thinking I was replying to a person with iq higher than 60. My apologies. Keep using the app then NPC sir. ;)

              @noticky: Just out of interest, do you actually know how the app really works? Or are you basing your opinion on the internet and random sound bites? Suggest you read the D Privacy impact assessment. In a nutshell if you have a smartphone you have no privacy. Cividsafe app is very low on the list of things ppl should worry about

              @noticky: lol look at you. I didn't even downvote you either.

    i hope that while stalking my ring doorbell, jeff would be kind enough to shout to the auspost contractor "DON'T YOU DARE THROW MY EFF'ING DELIVERY!!!!"

    If no subscription any feature works?

  •  

    if it was just scomo wanting to know my movements well I'm very regular.

    sadly jokes aside the current Australian government will allow anyone to know your movements in any number of countries..

      And you voted for this if you voted Labor or Liberal. There was an alternative but you chose to be China while pretending Australia isn't like that.

      Better throw away any data enabled mobile phone you carry with you constantly, if that concerns you.

      •  

        and avoid CCTV, toll roads, public transport, private paid transport, electronic transactions and a variety of other things.

        It is actually pretty hard to not get tracked down.

          so your point is do nothing, suck it up and surrender every bit of privacy you have left - like who visits you?

            @petry:

            so your point is do nothing

            No

            suck it up and surrender every bit of privacy you have left

            No

            like who visits you?

            No. But seriously, I have nothing to hide and if some contact tracer asked me who visited me I'd 100% truthfully tell them. Would you?

            And if you are going to say "of course" then maybe ask yourself why you don't want some authority knowing who visited you? What do you have to hide? Don't give me the right to privacy spiel. That is all fine and we all want that, but I think in the use case for COVID-19 it is handy to have these app in play incase I "forget" someone I've been in contact with or maybe I was in contact with someone I was unaware of that could be the carrier that is flagged down and isolated before they infect more people. That could literally save lives.

    I have 4 of these ring 2.
    They are all bad design. Recording lags via the internet. Yes I have places and all with different internet modems. So you can't blame the modem. What pisses me off so much is 2 weeks ago,one of my ring disappeared from the app so I tried to add it into the account again. I scanned the barcode and it says this device has been registered with someone. I spent half a day trying to sort it out. You name it, I tried contact ring but there is no way to do so in Australia. I tried uninstall and reinstall a few times. I tried to read up on this issue but no info. So sadly I gave up. It's very complicated once you have a problem and no help. Also be aware ring does not have an sd card slot, you must be force to subscribe and that's $40 a year if you want to be able to view you history of who has been at you place. It's pretty much useless if you don't subscribe. I absolutely regret getting so many rings for my properties. They are not cheap for not being able to record without subscription. I'm very disappointed. I bought a eufy 3 camera unit and it kicks rings ass in terms of performance. Do not get yourself into my situation!

      Was about to pull the trigger on the 3 but from what I can see there is no huge advantage and the price saving means I don't feel so "invested" if next year is a big step up in video quality
