14 Nov Opt-Out of Human Review on Your Alexa
Alexa IS Listening….
Following privacy concerns, Amazon has now created a way for users to opt-out of human review through the Alexa smartphone app, according to Bloomberg. This policy allows customers to remove their recordings from a pool that could be analyzed by Amazon employees and contract workers, a spokeswoman for the Seattle company said. It follows similar moves by Apple Inc. and Google who have already decided to suspend the manual review of recordings all together.
To turn this setting off, open the updated iOS or Android Alexa app and press the three horizontal lines in the top left corner. Next, tap settings and then select “Alexa Privacy.” (step by step images below)
From there you will be taken to another page, select “Manage How Your Data Improves Alexa” and then toggle the “Help Improve Amazon Services and Develop New Features” switch off. (step by step images below)
Users can also opt-out via Amazon’s website by clicking “Manage How Your Data Improves Alexa” and then toggling the “Help Improve Amazon Services and Develop New Features” switch off.
It is interesting to note that the manual review of recordings was never disclosed in the product’s terms in conditions, according to Bloomberg. But now, the Alexa app will contain a disclaimer in the settings menu.
