Senator Raises Privacy Concerns About Ring Doorbell Sharing with Police

Sen. Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.) is seeking answers from the doorbell-camera firm Ring about its hundreds of video-sharing partnerships with U.S. police agencies, citing “serious privacy and civil liberties concerns” that he said could put people at risk. In a letter to Amazon chief executive Jeff Bezos, whose company bought Ring last year, Markey requested details on the company’s coordination with law enforcement, its marketing to consumers and the more than 400 police partnerships it has across the country.
