Last fall, we announced that Ring would be the first major smart home security provider to offer video End-to-End Encryption to customers. We’re excited to announce that starting today, video End-to-End Encryption is rolling out to all eligible Ring devices. The feature is launching as a technical preview, and customers can share feedback on the feature via the End-to-End Encryption page in Control Center within the Ring App.
By default, Ring already encrypts videos when they are uploaded to the cloud (in transit) and stored on Ring’s servers (at rest). With End-to-End Encryption, customer videos are further secured with an additional lock, which can only be unlocked by a key that is stored on the customer’s enrolled mobile device, designed so that only the customer can decrypt and view recordings on their enrolled device.
Privacy, security and user control are foundational to Ring, and video End-to-End Encryption demonstrates Ring’s ongoing commitment to continually delivering enhanced privacy, security, and control to customers.
As the feature rolls out over the coming months, customers can enable the feature from Control Center in the Ring App. For step-by-step instructions on how to enable video End-to-End Encryption as well as a list of eligible devices, please visit our Help Center.
