So many aspects of this situation are incredibly unethical. (Make a list.)
Sadly, like many of you, I discovered that Ring seemingly ensured that app users would be unable to opt out of Sidewalk until:
- Ring, Amazon, and an unknown number of other third parties were given the opportunity to do whatever they wanted with your WiFi (without your knowledge and/or permission)
- Sidewalk was turned on, by default
In other words, by the time you are able to opt out of Sidewalk, it’s far too late. The damage has already been done.
Thus, will you ever trust these companies again? Or will you always be wondering what else they are doing to harm you… as well as what harm will happen to you in the future because of what they’ve already done?
