Wifi password vulnerability during setup?

I recently saw a story that indicates that when setting up a Ring camera (or making changes to existing camera after changing the network password) that the camera sends the login credentials to Ring via unsecure connection. And that this provides a opportunity for hackers to obtain the wifi password. If true, is there a way to connect a new camera without exposing the wifi password?

That issue was resolved very quickly.
