Amazon’s Ring keeps a log of every single time one of its cameras, doorbells or apps is activated and used, it has been revealed.
Events that are logged include motion detected by the cameras, a doorbell being activated or pressed by a visitor, or an action by the user to activate a live feed to converse with a visitor.
The data recorded also includes exact GPS co-ordinates of the devices as well as the duration of each event in seconds.
It has also been found that every time the Ring app is used by a customer, a permanent note of the device model and which network it uses is saved and recorded in a vast database.
Experts have slammed the feature and said it poses a ‘serious threat to people’s privacy’ and could easily be stolen or misused by criminals.
