This isn't a dear diary app for the paranoid

I love this app, I live in a high crime area and even had someone knocking on my windows late one night to test if anyone was home, so this is a must have app and makes me feel more secure. With that said, there really is no oversight regarding the content allowed, which is mostly fearmongering, when it's obvious the "suspicious" activity reported is Jehovah's Witnesses, Door to Door Sales, etc., Please employ a moderator for the app to review posts prior to uploading or add a report spam button so if enough people complain the post is deleted. Also after this latest update there is no longer a notification option in settings so I don't get any notifications now, it just reads disabled. *UPDATE* uninstalling/reinstalling fixed the notifications issue, but app desperately needs moderators, some users are actually trying to bully others into turning off their alerts altogether to avoid receiving bogus false alarm reports. This app is for suspicious or dangerous activity ONLY. Someone with a Clipboard, name badge, water bottle and smart device, equals salesman, people in groups wearing church attire and holding Bibles equal Jehovah's witnesses. I wish there was a penalty on this app for wittingly posting false reports, barred for an ever increasing amount of time for each offense.

Install Ring Spotlight

Really not sure how to rate this app as I have downloaded it, 3 times now , I touch home nothing happens, has me in a 3rd world country, needless to say I have removed it again, this time I plan to leave it off my phone, if I can get it to work on my iPad then I will leave it there, if not it goes away as well, I also don’t understand why there are two apps for this , as one say ads and the other nothing, downloaded the ad free app and both apps downloaded at the same time, I am guessing that this is probably the issue.

As of today July 20, 2018, I have been on hold with customer support for over 45 minutes, I can say I got my app up and running finally which is good. I just had one simple question why is one camera showing true colors and the other showing everything in red, I am tired of being on hold and could not find the answer via FAQ, so that lead me to call CS, which seems to be a mistake. I can say I having the Ring System on my Home though it would be nice to have answers to my questions.

An App for OCD curtain-twitchers, made by a company that abuses the data they get from its users

I’ll start by saying I think the idea for this App is a good one, however its achilles is over intrusive privacy settings and the overly paranoid user base it attracts, and yes I get the irony in that sentence.

I don’t know why this App requires such strict geographic settings in order to interact with posted material. For some reason it has to know exactly where I live and requires that I share my location with the App constantly. This is massively over the top to the point it’s just harvesting data from its users.

Perhaps the biggest issue is that the user base seems to mostly be made up of paranoid curtain twitchers who will post any random video of sales people, delivery people, etc and assume they’re up to no good. There have been around 10 posts in 3 weeks in my area and none are of crimes being committed or anything that would help stop crimes happening. They’re basically all people wanting to know who was the person ringing their doorbell, and there overreactions to not knowing. Ring needs to do more so normal users can flag posts as spam otherwise their App will drown in false-positive posts and people will stop using it due to it being a waste of their time.
