Michigan Ring Doorbell Owners Might Be Owed Money

If you have bought a Ring doorbell, you might be entitled to getting some money back from the company.

The Federal Trade Commission has announced that refunds totaling $5.6 million are owned by the company.


Well, the reasoning behind the refunds is due to a settlement. In the settlement, Ring was accused of allowing employees to access customers' private videos.

Also, the settlement case indicates that Ring failed to implement any security provisions that allow hackers to access Internet-supported devices more easily.

The case also states that Ring used collected information and data to train its algorithms without customers' consent.

How Do I Get My Refund From The Ring Doorbell Settlement?

According to the Federal Trade Commission, so far over 1,800 Michigan residents are owed money by the Ring corporation.
