Amazon Echo users can ask Alexa to delete stored recordings

ByMia Carla 2019-06-02 249

Due to privacy scandals in Facebook and other companies, some users who have used high-tech products have become more privacy-conscious. In turn, technology companies are becoming more proactive in empowering customers and ensuring that their data is not misused or stored incorrectly.

Amazon announced on Wednesday that it would make it easier for Echo users to delete recordings saved on the Amazon server. In a press release released on Wednesday, Amazon pointed out that Alexa users can now say "Alexa, delete everything I said today." Although the recording can be removed from the Alexa application before, the new voice commands can greatly simplify the process.

Amazon further pointed out that Alexa users will soon be able to delete their recent requests, they simply say: "Alexa, delete what I just said."

Amazon announced the news when it announced the launch of Echo Show 5. The Echo Show 5 is a compact and relatively affordable smart display with a 5.5-inch display and a retail price of $90.

Not surprisingly, Echo Show 5 has its own built-in privacy framework.

Echo devices have multiple layers of privacy protection. Like all Echo Show devices, the new Echo Show 5 includes a mic/camera off button that electronically disconnects the microphone and camera, as well as a clear visual indicator that shows when audio or video is uploaded to the cloud. In addition, the Echo Show 5 has a built-in shutter so you can easily cover the camera while still talking to Alexa.
