If you have an Amazon device, like Alexa, Ring, etc, you soon will be sharing your internet connection publicly (at least a small portion of it). Amazon is quietly opting-in device owners to create a new public network called Sidewalk. This new feature will be turned on by default. You can turn it off fairly easily by performing the following steps:
Should you choose to opt-out of Amazon Sidewalk, here’s how:
Open the Alexa app on your iPhone or Android
Tap Account Settings
Tap Amazon Sidewalk
Toggle the switch to Off to disable your participation
You can always change your mind later and join back in.
