 Device type
 Device operating system
 Date device was first authorized

How to access Authorized Client Devices in Control Center.

From the Ring app:

1.
1.Open the Ring app. 
2.Tap the top menu ().
3.Tap Control Center.

Removing Authorized Client Devices

You have the option to delete one authorized device at a time, or all devices at once (except for the device you are currently using).

Deleting One Device
When you delete a single device, you are immediately removing this device's ability to access your Ring account. For example, if you gave your old phone or tablet to a friend, you should delete this device from your list of devices authorized to access your Ring account.

Removing All Devices
If you Remove All Devices, you are revoking access for all devices that are authorized to access your Ring account – except for the device you are currently using.

Shared Users, not passwords.

Do not share your password with anyone.
No Ring employee, Customer Support Associate, or Community Manager will ever ask you for your password.

If you want to share access to a Ring device with a friend or family member, you can add them as a Shared User.

What to do if your Ring account has been compromised

1.  Change your password immediately.
When you use the same password for multiple
online accounts, you are at risk to cybercriminals (or bad actors). For example: If a bad actor acquires your password through a data breach of your email provider and you use the same password for your Ring account, this makes your Ring account more vulnerable. 

Because we require an additional layer of account security with Two-Step Verification, your Ring account is still protected. However, we strongly recommend you change your password immediately.
Learn how to change your Ring password

2.  Remove Authorized Client Devices you don't recognize.
If you suspect your Ring account has been compromised, remove any and all devices that you confidently didn't authorize. 

3.  Contact our Customer Support Team.
After you've successfully changed your password, please 
Contact Us so we can take proper measures to help prevent further risk.
