Rings finally adds end-to-end encryption to wireless cameras, but there’s a catch

0

Home security brand Ring is expanding end-to-end encryption (also known as E2EE) support to more devices while also introducing a new data transfer feature. It’s a welcome security update, but it also forces the deactivation of some useful Ring features.

Previously, E2EE was only available to wired products like the Ring Video Doorbell Pro and Floodlight Cam. Now that support is migrating over to Ring’s wireless cameras and doorbells. However, it’s unknown if everything in the lineup will get it. Nowhere in the announcement does it say whether or not all wireless devices will have the E2EE support; although there are reports (opens in new tab) stating the support is indeed universal. We reached out to the company to see if it could clear up this confusion. This story will be updated if we hear back.
