However, another fact may attract your attention: in some certain cases, the number of users who believe that their devices are spying on them is much bigger than that of users in general.

In terms of smart voice assistants, the case almost has no difference.

Also in the research, about a third are afraid that they may be isolated from the surrounding society due to the growing development of technology, while about 34% think that Artificial Intelligence (AI) will replace human interactions. 32% say that humans may be more and more dependent on technology.
