Rings Finally Add End-to-End Encryption to Wireless Cameras, But There’s a Problem

Home security brand Ring is expanding support for end-to-end encryption (aka E2EE) to more devices, as well as introducing a new data transfer feature. It’s a welcome security update, but it also forces you to disable some useful Ring features.

Previously, E2EE was only available for wired products such as the Ring Video Doorbell Pro and Floodlight Cam. Now this support is migrating for Wireless Cameras and Ring Doorbells. However, it is unknown if everything on the schedule will make it. Nowhere in the ad does it say whether or not all wireless devices will support E2EE; despite having reports (opens in new tab) stating that support is indeed universal. We contacted the company to see if they could clear up this confusion. This story will be updated if we receive a response.
