I am honestly freaking out about Amazon Sidewalk

Is there any way to stop Amazon rolling this out altogether?
I can’t sleep…
The reason I get ring alarm, cameras and lights was to feel secure, now I feel quite opposite, Im shaken and devastated.
I need help

You can turn it off.

You can turn it off. I don’t want anything to do with Sidewalk and the auto opt-in is a stupid decision.

It is not giving anyone control of or access to any of your equipment or videos. It is using a small amount of available bandwidth as a WiFi hot spot. People are overreacting to this. Some cable providers have been doing the same thing for years.

Hey neighbors! I’m here to help clear up some confusion that there may be around the Sidewalk feature and it’s opt-out option and viewing this in app. Sidewalk is only enabled for existing customers with eligible Sidewalk-enabled Ring devices, known as Sidewalk Bridges. You can see which Ring devices are Sidewalk-compatible here . Before Sidewalk became available, we began notifying existing customers with eligible Sidewalk Bridge devices so they could consider the benefits of Sidewalk and decide whether they want to change their preferences. Customers setting up a Sidewalk Bridge for the first time will see their Sidewalk settings during device setup, and can change those settings at any time.

Please note : You must have a Sidewalk-enabled Ring device to use Sidewalk. You can learn more in our Help Center article here . If you do not have a compatible device, Sidewalk is not available to you.
