Amazon Sidewalk is one of the coolest new ways to connect smart devices in your home and beyond. Many Ring devices can use the Amazon Sidewalk Network to extend WiFi coverage to several other smart devices. Even tile trackers and level locks can use Amazon Sidewalk to connect outside of normal Bluetooth range. In addition, Ring devices like the Echo Show 8 can be used as Amazon sidewalk bridges. You may want to turn off Amazon Sidewalk on Ring if you have additional concerns about privacy or mobile security. Even if you’ve disabled Amazon Sidewalk elsewhere, you’ll need to disable it in the Ring app specifically to disconnect your Ring devices from the network. Let’s begin!
How to turn off Amazon Sidewalk on your Ring devices
- Open the Ring app on your smartphone.
- Tap the Hamburger menu in the upper left corner of the Ring app. It looks like three horizontal lines stacked on top of each other.

If you change your mind, just repeat the steps above to sign in to Amazon Sidewalk for all of your Ring devices. Likewise, disabling Amazon Sidewalk on Ring will be disabled for all of your Ring devices, so you won’t have to adjust the settings for each small Ring device you own. However, you must sign out of Amazon Sidewalk for any other service that supports Amazon Sidewalk. So find out about the devices that support this.
