Amazon Will Give You More Privacy Control On Alexa

You can even ask your device to tell you what it heard.

Following Google’s recent move, Amazon is also launching a bunch of new tools for users to help them gain more control over the amount of voice recording stored in Alexa-powered devices. This change is believed to ease the heat of many privacy scares spreading out the whole industry. At the company’s hardware event, Amazon had introduced that set as an important part of upgrades in both software and hardware for its personal voice assistant.

Amazon’s executive Dave Limp announced at the event that this new push toward privacy will give users the ability to monitor and directly delete recordings via their voice assistants. Starting months ago, users could start using voice commands to specifically delete unwanted recordings. For example, once they’ve said “Alexa, delete what I just said/I said today”, the voice assistant would no longer save these contemporary data as from that. Furthermore, they can check how a given exchange would be recorded when asking Alexa to “tell me what you heard.”

However, one of the most significant protection is a periodic deletion plan, which will delete all the voice recording after a certain time period (about three to 18 months). Though this feature will not be automatically activated by default, it might be useful for those who are conscious about privacy, this is an important change that had not been previously rolled out.

The privacy package also comes with new supports for other Amazon’s products. As of now, users can also manually disconnect the camera on the Echo Show 5.
