Privacy is a big concern nowadays. And, lots of people will not put an Amazon Echo or similar device in their home because of this. My stance is that we all already carry around a smartphone that has a microphone, camera, GPS, and a ton of other ways to track, listen, or record us if they chose to do that. Do I think anybody(besides possibly Facebook) is doing that? No.
If you have concerns about what Amazon is recording when you speak to Alexa they make it readily available in the Alexa App or at alexa.amazon.com We’ll show you how to hear and if you choose to, delete every recording that Amazon has.
- First things first. Open the Alexa App on your phone or head over to alexa.amazon.com
- Open the Menu in the upper left corner
- Open the settings menu
- Scroll down until you find History, click that
- In History, you’ll find all of your voice interactions with Alexa
- You can now click a line to see details, hear recordings, or delete recordings
There you go. Nice and simple. So if you ever want to hear yourself asking Alexa to play love songs in the bedroom you can. I’m not sure why you would want to but go ahead. Knock yourself out.
