I'm sure you've seen the stories in the past few months about how your smart speaker is constantly recording you. And that Amazon has hired employees to listen to audio from their devices.
If you didn't know, then now you do. And you're welcome.
Well there's an easy way to go through and delete all the recordings that your Echo has been archiving!
Here are the steps through the Amazon Alexa app:
- Go to Settings in the drop down menu
- Select Alexa Account
- Select Alexa Privacy
- Select Review Voice History
It shows you all your recordings, broken down by date.
You can listen to them AND delete them!
It's actually a little creepy hearing myself give the commands.
Full disclosure: when I checked my recordings, all I had was the commands. I didn't have any personal conversations...or anything I've said to my cats. lol
When I just went back further through my history, I DID hear random stuff I said to my cats!
