Ring Doorbell App Packed with Third-Party Trackers - EFF

An investigation by EFF of the Ring doorbell app for Android found it to be packed with third-party trackers sending out a plethora of customers’ personally identifiable information (PII). Four main analytics and marketing companies were discovered to be receiving information such as the names, private IP addresses, mobile network carriers, persistent identifiers, and sensor data on the devices of paying customers.

Let me sum up this report (and previous reports) for you. If you have any product by Ring, destroy it. What a horrible product. There are alternatives that are better in every way.
