Ding-dong, here's a map of the cops who use Ring doorbells to spy on you:

First clic on a bullet:
"451: Unavailable due to legal reasons
We recognize you are attempting to access this website from a country belonging to the European Economic Area (EEA) including the EU which enforces the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and therefore access cannot be granted at this time."

Ok so to answer the question in the url, I gess that it's a yes, and an other yes for the website publishing the article. 😁

By the way I'm really impressed by the work done on this map.

@roipoussiere I was very happy to see that others are interested in shedding light on this problem.

I’ve been noodling on ways to turn the tables on these surveillance industry assholes.

@requiem your post makes it seem as if it wasn't required to opt-in to this service by installing the neighbor app.

@krojas it's slippery, it's technically opt-in, but there are police departments offering the devices for free but requiring those who accept the device to setup the app, and various other coercive techniques.

@requiem On the bright side, it's so far contained in the usa. Or is that just the map?

@gemlog afaik it's U.S. only, but I could be wrong.

All I know is that I've got my hands on one of these devices, and I'm going to start filing hilarious false reports soon...
