    Do you have Alexa ?

    I was in NY just for a meeting and stayed at my uncle's house. My cousin has Alexa. While we were having dinner, the device made weird noises. Especially when we were talking about religion.

    Then I realized. wait.... Alexa? Didn't i read an article about Alexa spying on people or something.

    I told them " DAMN! ALEXA was probably spying on y'all this whole time"

    Then Alexa said something, i can't remember what , because when you say "Alexa" + something it activates the device. I was startled.

    So I told them to calm down and just sing the American Anthem and our love for freedom. And while we sing let's unplug Alexa.


    I'm paranoid I know :meleshame:

    Alexa, Google Nest and the other "Assistants" are 100% spying on so many people. Google and Amazon both admit to having paid teams of employees with their only job being listening in on peoples conversations. They transcribe everything they hear and save those files.
    I don;t like people watching me, and certainly will not pay to place a device/service in my home that can and WILL be used to listen to my conversations. Our cell phones are just as bad. The iPhone (Siri) and Android (Google Assistant) phones listen 24 hours a day and regularly take small recordings of conversations and send them to the cloud. If you know what these devices do it is terrifying.
