Does anyone know how to remove the small Red dot on the Menu icon in the top left corner of the Dashboard screen in the iPadOS version of the Ring app WITHOUT clicking on the “Shop Deals” menu choice?
I have tried a variety of strategies, including selecting the “Checkmark icon” in the upper right corner of the “What’s New” screen. Not only did this fail to remove the small Red dot (mentioned above), but it ADDED an obnoxious “Number icon” (with a Red background) to the left of the Shop Deals menu choice.
I specifically do NOT want to know about any “deals” on Ring products. I STRONGLY object to the (relentless) marketing/advertising in the Ring app (and Neighbors app), and thus, have no interest in being forced to view it (or acknowledge it).
If Ring is going to use any Red dots, Red badges, Red number icons, etc., it should be for the benefit of the user. For example, warning the user that there is a problem with one or more hardware devices. These tactics should NEVER be used in an attempt to trick users into viewing/acknowledging marketing/advertising (or punishing users for refusing to do so).
