How to Delete Ring Doorbell Videos

All of your Ring Doorbell recordings are stored in the Ring app. If you use the device a lot, your video event log can get crowded.

To free up space and keep the app running smoothly, it’s important to clear your video history and delete recordings. Here’s how:

You can delete Ring videos in the event history section of the app. Let me walk you through the steps:

Deleting Events

All Ring Doorbell videos are stored in the event log of your Ring app. Deleting these videos is easy, and you have the option to delete one, multiple, or all of them.

Remove a Single Event from the Ring Doorbell App

To delete a single video event or multiple videos, follow these instructions:

  1. Open the Ring Doorbell app on your Android or iOS device.
  2. Tap the menu icon (three horizontal lines) at the top-left of the screen.
  3. Select “History.” Alternatively, you can go to the Dashboard, tap the settings icon on the top-right, and select “Event History.”
  4. Swipe the screen to the right. You’ll see empty checkboxes next to each event.
  5. Check the box next to the event you want to delete.
  6. Tap the trash can button at the bottom-left of the screen to delete the event.

If you want to delete multiple videos, simply check the boxes next to each video you want to remove before tapping the “Delete” button.

Remove All Events from the Ring Doorbell App

If you want to delete all the events from the app, follow steps 1-4 above to see the checkmarks.

To save time, you can tap the “Delete All” button on the bottom-right of the screen. This will clear your Ring Doorbell history completely.

Can’t See the Checkmarks when Swiping?

If the app doesn’t respond to swiping from left to right, try the alternative method:

  1. Click the menu icon (three horizontal lines) at the top-left of the screen.
  2. Tap “History.”
  3. Tap “Edit” at the top-right of the “History” screen.
  4. Select the “Delete All” button at the bottom-right.
  5. Confirm your choice when prompted.

You can also long-press any video in your event history to make the checkboxes appear. Then, tap the menu icon at the top-right and select “Delete All.”

Don’t Want to Use Ring Doorbell Anymore?

If you want to delete your Ring videos because you no longer want to use the app, it’s better to remove your account. This will delete all your user data from the device, including history, videos, location, and account information. Follow these steps:

  1. Open the Ring app.
  2. Tap the icon of your Ring Doorbell device at the top-left of the screen.
  3. Select the settings icon at the top-right.
  4. Scroll down and tap the red “Remove Device” button.
  5. Confirm your selection when prompted.

Once your account is removed, all your information will be wiped clean. So you won’t have to worry about your privacy.

Need More Space? Try the Premium Protection Plan

The Ring Doorbell app has limited space for event history videos. If you don’t want to delete a Ring Doorbell video to make room for a new recording, you can switch to Ring’s Premium Protection plan.

With a monthly or annual subscription, the Premium Protection plan allows you to store all your history in the Cloud for 60 days. You can also choose which recordings to download and save later.

This is a convenient way to save space on your device. The Ring app will store everything on an external memory, instead of using up your device’s internal memory. For more information about the Premium Plan, visit Ring’s official website.

Save Your Space

As you can see, deleting Ring Doorbell videos and events is a simple process. Most of these videos are probably unimportant recordings, but you can choose to keep the more relevant ones. You can even download and store them for a long time if you have the premium plan.
