The Ring doorbell camera system has become one of the most popular home security add-ons in recent years, but some people have questioned the security of the Internet of Things (IoT) devices. On Feb 18th, Ring president Leila Rouhi published a blog post that stated that the once optional two-factor authentication (2FA) will now become mandatory for all Ring accounts. With a large number of users who reuse passwords across multiple accounts, forcing 2FA will help add a layer of security to keep unauthorized users from gaining access. Leila Rouhi also stated that the company is changing how it shares data with third-party providers.
