Amazon forced to give Alexa users the option to stop staff listening to recordings of them having sex – The Sun

“For Alexa, we already offer customers the ability to opt out of having their voice recordings used to help develop new Alexa features.

“The voice recordings from customers who use this opt-out are also excluded from our supervised learning workflows that involve manual review of an extremely small sample of Alexa requests.

“We’ll also be updating information we provide to customers to make our practices more clear.”


If they wanted to, Amazon could develop an insightful and thorough psychological profile of me but I don't think they'd have any reason to. So I'm safe for the time being at least. But I don't like the idea of the Chinese getting a hold of all that, which may just be a matter of time.
