@zackwhittaker @hacks4pancakes After I found out Ring was giving the data to police I removed mine. Bought a doorbell with local storage only. Never been happier.

@zackwhittaker I feel like I noticed this a year+ ago when scraping their api. They just mask that out in the client.

Although users' posts are public, the app doesn't display people's names or precise locations. But the bug made it possible to retrieve the location data and home addresses on users who posted to the app including those who are reporting crimes.

based on how every single one of the staff is hyping up the girls and freaking out about how well they're doing on the charts you can just tell that they really are a family ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ

@incheonfirefist Yeah. I think the dystopia series will still continue, maybe one more chapter, until they reach utopia. Then proceed to a new chapter with a new story
