Ring of fired: Amazon axes multiple workers who secretly snooped on netizens' surveillance camera footage


The article references an internal policy which I suspect gives employees little or no option but to agree to allow their videos to be shared. While this may give Ring a good stream of data to analyze, it is probably very stupid from a security perspective, as it means people who have authority to look at the data, very likely know the people who's data it is. I also see no reference to anonymization.


Who would have thought that people would like to know what their co-workers were up to outside of work?
