Amazon has been sent a letter by five senators Wednesday with questions on the data security of its smart video doorbell Ring. The letter, signed by Democratic Senators Ron Wyden, Edward J. Markey, Chris Van Hollen, Chris Coons and Gary Peters, follows vulnerabilities being discovered earlier this month.

"Millions of consumers use Ring ," the letter says. "Ring devices routinely upload data, including video records, to Amazon's servers. Amazon therefore holds a vast amount of deeply sensitive data and video footage detailing the lives of millions of Americans."

Taylor Swift to Headline Capital One JamFest in Atlanta — Her Only 2020 Show Outside of Lover Fest

  Taylor Swift to Headline Capital One JamFest in Atlanta — Her Only 2020 Show Outside of Lover Fest Taylor Swift to Headline Capital One JamFest in Atlanta — Her Only 2020 Show Outside of Lover Fest The 29-year-old Grammy winner is set to headline Capital One JamFest as part of the 2020 NCAA March Madness Music Festival in Atlanta, PEOPLE confirms exclusively.The free concert will be Swift’s only performance in the U.S. outside of her previously planned Lover Fest West and Lover Fest East shows in Los Angeles and Foxborough.Capital One JamFest will take place on the final day of March Madness Music Festival, a three-day free music series kicking off on April 3 at Atlanta’s Centennial Olympic Park.

This footage could threaten US national security if exploited by foreign national intelligence agencies, the senators argued, in addition to threatening the privacy and safety of Americans.

Ring doorbells had a vulnerability that leaked Wi-Fi login info for months, researchers found earlier in November, including usernames and passwords. The discovery came in addition to revelations earlier this year of how Amazon's helping police build a surveillance network with its Ring doorbell cameras.

Amazon has more than 500 cities partnered to use the footage for law enforcement purposes, according to digital rights group Fight for the Future.

Alicia Keys Returns as GRAMMY Awards Host for a Second Time

  Alicia Keys Returns as GRAMMY Awards Host for a Second Time The singer hosted the 2019 ceremony in February.The "Girl on Fire" singer will emcee the 62nd Annual GRAMMY Awards in January for a second time. Keys' first time taking the reigns was this year, where she also delivered a stellar performance.

The senators' letter on Wednesday pointed to the Wi-Fi vulnerability and reports last year that Ring workers in Ukraine were able to watch people's videos without them knowing.

"Americans who make the choice to install Ring products in and outside their homes do so under the assumption that they are ... making the neighborhood safer," the letter says. "The American people have a right to know who else is looking at the data they provide to Ring, and if that data is secure from hackers."

They want a response from Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos by Jan. 6, 2020, detailing how many Ring devices have been sold in the US, whether Ring deletes video footage, its data retention policy, whether it encrypts footage, its security testing and auditing practices, how much access Ring employees have to footage and live feeds, whether employees in Ukraine and other foreign nations have access and Ring's plans to use facial recognition.
