Alexa Feature on Voice Recording Review

Technology Inceptions

Amazon has started offering Alexa users the option to disable human review of their voice recordings. The option is now available via the Alexa smartphone app and is enabled by default. So, if you don't want Amazon employees or contractors listening to your Alexa voice history, you can disable it now.  Amazon's decision comes after Apple was caught in a privacy scandal over the company's contractors listening to some really private stuff.

The option to disable the human review of Alexa voice recordings can be found in Settings > Alexa Privacy > Manage How Your Data Improves Alexa settings in the Alexa smartphone app. The Manage How Your Data Improves Alexa page offers two options – Help Improve Amazon Services and Develop New Features and Allow Amazon to use messages you send with Alexa to improve transcription accuracy. Both of these options are enabled by default. You need to disable these to stop possible human review of your Alexa voice recordings.
