Just take the battery out and don’t tell him

If he doesn't live with you, could you not change the account?

That is what I did when DH and I were on a split and he even noticed lol. It was only when we discussed him moving back that i said I would reset it to the main couples email address and he was like what!?

I would love to but it's registered in his email account. So. It sure how I would go about that!

Ah ok. I still think you can if you have access to settings.

If not, take it off and set it up in the garden or side of your house for "security"!

Call Ring customer services and explain the situation - they might be able to offer you some advice. They’re usually pretty helpful.

Failing that just delete all the videos en masse every day ? Pain in the bum but also a possibility

Can’t you just disconnect it?

Surely if he is no longer living there you phone up the provider and tell them that and due to privacy they have to stop the service?

Can't you disconnect it from it's power source/take it down?

As a man, here's my thoughts.

Do you all live together still? I guess it depends on why he's "checking" upon you. We're in the process of divorce, but still live together and have agreed on no partners back at the family home. I trust her (I think), but if she asked me to remove the Ring (if we had one) I'd be very suspicious that I should not trust her.

If however you're living apart and you don't have any agreements like I have with my stbxw and he still has access to the Ring, I would say that is worrying and overly controlling. If he sat outside your house 24/7 you'd not even be asking if it was okay to ask him to stop!

I'd say the fact that you think he's going to check up on you is justification enough to not have the Ring for now. Do you have a genuine need for it, or could you live without it until things are a bit more sorted?
