You Can Change Your Alexa Setting So You Won’t Be Recorded -If you don’t want Amazon to hear you when Alexa is on, there’s a way to make it happen.
It probably would be smart of Amazon to make it an option to turn ON the feature, but for now, you must turn off the option that allows the eavesdropping. As we told you, the online retail giant employs thousands to analyse Alexa owners and what they say. Creepy!
If you want to block that, here’s how:
- Go to “Alexa Account”
- Then Choose “Alexa Privacy”
- Then “Manage How Your Data Improves Alexa”
- Turn OFF “Helps Develop New Features”
- Turn OFF Use messages To Improve Transcriptions
Hopefully, there’s no other way they can listen in. If you’re concerned about privacy and have another kind of virtual assistant device, read the instructions and settings.
