Amazon begins to offer users of Ring products end-to-end encryption of videos. In the US, Amazon has already started a test for some users that includes end-to-end encryption on several smart doorbells and security cameras from Ring.

According to the Amazon subsidiary, videos recorded with Ring products are already encrypted during the upload to the cloud. In addition, the videos are therefore encrypted while they are in the cloud. However, Ring can access these encrypted videos. Various functions, such as streaming videos on certain smart displays, require this access.

With end-to-end encryption, Ring loses the Ability to access the encrypted videos, completely. The key required for decryption is stored locally on the user’s device – usually the linked smartphone.

Opt-in function End-to-end encryption is switched off by default. If you want to activate it, you have to activate it manually in the associated app. Currently supported devices include the Video Doorbell Pro, Video Doorbell Elite, and several security cameras. Ring provides an overview of the compatible devices and the encryption technology used in a PDF document.

Ring had already announced last autumn that end-to-end encryption would be made possible for smart doorbells and security cameras. In the coming months, the feature should reach more and more users – it is not yet known when German users of Ring products will also be able to activate end-to-end encryption.
