Should You Trust Amazon Alexa?

If you haven’t heard of Amazon Alexa, you’re probably wondering whether you should trust her. After all, she has a live microphone, so there’s a chance she could accidentally record your conversation and send it to Amazon. However, you can opt out of this recording process, so that your recordings are not shared with Amazon employees. However, you may not want to give Alexa that much access to your private information, so there are some ways to ensure her security.

The question of whether you can trust Alexa is an ongoing one. As Amazon continues to expand into new domains and adds features to its service, privacy concerns are becoming increasingly pressing. The company is paying people to listen to the recordings and may be using the information for advertising purposes, but they don’t disclose that in their privacy policies. You can read about these privacy risks in the Pocket-lint Podcast episode 119.

Having said that, there is a big risk of using Amazon Alexa without understanding its privacy settings. The smart speaker listens to conversations in your home and knows when to activate and deactivate itself. The problem is that Alexa may misinterpret the chatter in your home and record it. In fact, Amazon is currently facing litigation over this issue and has admitted to secretly turning off Alexa during private moments.
