Ring has launched a technical preview of video end-to-end encryption to bolster the security of home video feeds.
This week, the Amazon-owned smart doorbell maker said the feature is currently being rolled out to customers in order to elicit feedback, and if it proves to be successful, end-to-end video encryption could eventually be offered to users that want to add an “additional layer of security to their videos” as an opt-in feature. “We will continue to innovate and invest in features that empower our neighbours with the ability to easily view, understand, and manage how their videos and information stay secure with Ring,” the company says.

Martin Jartelius, CSO at Outpost24 commented:
it’s still great to see something that had potential but also substantial challenges rise to take a very serious positioning in regards to security.
The news that Ring End-to-End Encryption is coming is very welcome. Ring has perhaps some of the most
notorious famous coverage around unauthorised access to their devices and turning that around is of paramount importance to secure confidence in the product.
