Since video doorbells have come on the scene it has made life easier for homeowners.

There have also been incidents of hackers being able to gain access to someone’s system and spying on unsuspecting homeowners. Find out if your system is at risk.
Ashley LeMay who is named in a lawsuit against the makers of the Ring video doorbell camera says a hacker gained access to their camera and told her daughter that the was Santa Clause. This hacker also instructed her daughter to destroy her belongings. Another family also reported their system was hacked, and the hacker began conversing with them.
How does this happen? The answer lies within user’s data. According to NordVPN In 2019, more than 3000 Ring users’ credentials ended up online. They came from a credential stuffing attack, not the company’s databases. The hackers took username and password combinations from other breaches and used them to log into Ring accounts. Since people tend to use the same credentials for most of their accounts, many of those attacks were successful.
