Ring introduces compulsory two-step verification

Ring has introduced mandatory two-step verification.

Amazon's video doorbell has introduced additional steps to the way users log in, and they will now need to enter a password and unique six-digit code when they first log in to access the Neigbors app or view their footage.

This week, Ring - which is also pausing data-sharing with third party companies - unveiled the new system.

The new log-in sees users sign in with a username and password before the app sends either a text message or email with a one-time code.

Once this is entered, the owner can access the app and view footage from the outdoor and indoor cameras.

THe user will be able to use the mobile apps for 30 days before being required to go through the process again - unless they log out of their account in the meantime.
