There’s a good chance your kids, significant other, or anyone near your Amazon Echo can find out what you bought on Amazon for the holidays. They don’t have to sneak on the computer or look under the bed. They can simply ask:
Alexa, where’s my stuff?
By default, if you shipment notification turned on, the Amazon Echo will tell you what products are out for shipment, have been delivered, and which ones are getting ready to ship. This can be very helpful, for you. But, Alexa is not that loyal, she responds to anyone (who’s not a child and doesn’t have an accent).
You can keep Christmas a surprise by heading to the Alexa App on your phone and following the steps below:
Open the Alexa App and head to settings.
From there go to Notifications.
And turn off Give product names, notifications and Give product names, “where’s my stuff”
That’s it! Now Alexa will only say the person’s name that ordered the package
Hopefully, you didn’t learn this the hard way.
