Police have your Ring footage. They're not the only ones looking at it
The Daily Charge
Next up, you might be sharing videos from ring with police because you trust your local officers but those videos can be used for a completely unrelated issues.
A CNET investigation found that ring had been promoting to police that officers could share obtained footage with other agencies.
The company doesn't take responsibility for what happens once officers get those clips and video requests from police sent through ring the company does not tell people that detail so you don't know when your clip center police is being used for other purposes.
Which is something that privacy advocates worry about.
Cuz you should be able to know like okay, I gave them the right but then you realise you're just waving everything away.
Yeah, we asked two police departments have you been sharing this with federal agencies, other police departments, and they said no, but there are more than 400 police departments partnered with Ring.
I mean, Most likely I need to get down and ask all of them.
And they said no, but that's not stopping them for a future case.
Yes, yeah cuz these police that we reached out to had only really partnered with them in the last six months or so.
So if they can share a of other agencies there's a concern that you know a clip used to stop a local burglary could also be used by ice on an unrelated person, videos background for example.
Yeah, I know that there's a lot of arguments and I'm like, well I have nothing to hide and this isn't good that it can stop someone whose terrible in the neighborhood, but what concerns me after you reading your great report, clap clap, clap clap, is that
There's no wording for the consumer to say that this is happening.
We need more transparency.
If you wanna participate, you just need to be it all has to be spelled out that like my footage.
If I send to A certain group can isn't it can't go anywhere.
There's no time that will be deleted that kind of thing.
You got to think about the far reaching like the step five and six not just the here and now.>> Yeah, the argument is that ring keep saying that people give this footage to officers with their complete consent, but how much of it is really consent when you don't know like everything?
Thing that you're giving up.
