I opted out of Amazon Sidewalk because I’m paranoid. While I see it could have value under certain conditions, I’m not sure I want Alexa to have that much power – or more control than she already has. What say you?
"Amazon is launching its Wi-Fi sharing system, called Sidewalk, nationwide in the U.S. on June 8. That means if you own a Ring doorbell or Amazon Echo the company will share a small portion of your internet bandwidth with other devices nearby. It’s aimed at making sure Amazon’s devices are able to be online even if, say, your broadband goes down as well as allowing access to devices outside of the normal range of your Wi-Fi.
