Manage Alexa privacy using voice commands
Expanding its privacy voice controls introduced last year, Amazon has added a couple of new privacy voice commands that allows users to delete their voice recordings, ask Alexa to review their privacy settings and also about any privacy-related questions. Let’s see how this works:
Command 1: Alexa, delete everything I’ve said
This command will delete all the voice recordings associated with the respective Amazon account.
Command 2: Alexa, how do I review my privacy settings?
Alexa will send a direct link in the Alexa app that will redirect users to Alexa Privacy Settings. Here users can review their privacy settings and make the necessary changes that’s best for them.
Command 3: Alexa, how do I manage my data?
Alexa can now answer questions like this. Users can now ask Alexa about how to manage their data stored on Amazon accounts and more.
