Easton Courier Cybersecurity Corner

Did you install a Ring camera or doorbell for security? If so, there are a couple of things you should know about these devices. They have been hacked in 2019, including instances where strangers were able to commandeer Ring cameras to surveil and harass people in their own homes.

Ring has introduced a number of standard security measures for users, like default two-factor authentication — a feature that requires users to provide a second piece of info like a code from their phone before they can get access to an account — and a dashboard through which they can monitor who else might be accessing their video feeds.

Please make sure to use this feature. You can read more about the security measures at outsecure.com
