Ring's Double Speak On Facial Recognition

If you have a Ring doorbell, just assume everyone knows what your camera sees and you'll be just fine...or not.

For example, I've been repeatedly emailed by company spokespeople to tell me that cops only get access to Ring customers' videos if the customers offer to share it; but what they never said is that if a customer turns down a police request, Amazon instructs the cops to make an "official request" to the company and then they grant warrantless access to the footage.
