(CNN) – The Federal Trade Commission is sending refunds to more than 117,000 Ring users.

It comes from a settlement with Ring over charges the company allowed employees and contractors to access cameras.

That gave them the ability to view consumers’ private videos without consent.

The company was also accused of failing to implement security protections to keep hackers out of customer accounts.

So far, the FTC has identified more than $5.6 million worth of refunds. The agency is sending those through PayPal.

Consumers who think they are entitled to a refund can request one on the FTC’s website.
