Some Ring Doorbell Pro users could temporarily see other people's houses
A big part of using any kind of connected security system is trusting the company you're paying to keep your information private, and a handful of Ring Doorbell Pro owners recently found that trust had been compromised. Notifications started coming from other Ring Doorbell Pro owners, with video feeds attached that were not from the right house.
Seeing someone else's house in your security app isn't cool, but knowing that there's a distinct likelihood someone else is looking through the camera mounted on your door frame is more than a little unsettling. After receiving a tip from a reader who was understandably concerned, we reached out to Ring for a little clarification on this. Brand Manager Yassi Shahmiri offered an explanation.
While it's nice to see Ring address the issue quickly, and it seems true that this only affected a small group of users, it's a scary thing to have happen. If you were one of those affected by this Ring Doorbell Pro issue, shout out in the comments below!
