    I heard about this on the radio this morning as I was driving to work. I don't own an Amazon Echo, I don't use Amazon's Alexa, nor do I have a Ring Doorbell. And I am SO GLAD, because of Amazon Sidewalk, which is being launched today. Unless users opt-out of this, Unless "all Amazon Echo and Ring users now share a slice of your bandwidth with the neighborhood."

    "If you own one of these devices and want to opt-out, here's how:

    1. Open the Alexa app in your phone.

    2. Tap More in the lower right-hand corner of the app.

    3. Tap Settings.

    4. Tap Account Settings.

    5. Tap Amazon Sidewalk.

    6. Switch Sidewalk off and exit out of the app."

    I’m not an Amazon user (besides their store).


    I read it on another forum that’s visited mostly Canadians IIRC.
    They didn’t even have the setting to opt-out, so…
