Oct 20 - Woman Asks Amazon For Her Data, Finds Out They Have Thousands of Recordings
 

 

A woman was shocked to discover just how much data Amazon has collected about her.

She posted a viral TikTok video explaining how she requested to see the data but wasn’t expecting to receive so much.

TikToker my.data.not.yours explained: “I requested all the data Amazon has on me and here’s what I found.”

She revealed that she has three Amazon smart speakers.

Two are Amazon Dot speakers and one is an Echo device.

Her home also contains smart bulbs.

She said: “When I downloaded the ZIP file these are all the folders it came with.”

The TikToker then clicked on the audio file and revealed thousands of short voice clips that she claims Amazon has collected from her smart speakers.

She described them as “so scary” and played one of her talking about turning on a light.

There are said to be 3,534 short audio clips in that file alone.

She was also sent a “Contacts” file.

The TikToker stated: “It turns out they have a full list of my contacts from my phone and I never remember syncing that.”

“The very last thing that I didn’t know that they had, I could have a*sumed that they have but I don’t love that they have, is my location.”

She revealed another file that apparently showed the exact location of her Alexa smart speakers.

The social media star often makes videos about data privacy and tech.

She said: “I’m not totally comfortable with everything they have.”

The video has been viewed millions of times.

One shocked viewer wrote: “It’s scary that people with Echo Dots and Alexa’s etc don’t know that Amazon records you and keeps the recordings.”

While another joked: “Can someone explain to me why this is ‘scary’? I’m not interesting enough to care if they have my contacts or audio.”

An Amazon spokesperson said: “We give customers transparency and control over their Alexa experience.”

“Customers can easily review and delete their voice recordings, or choose not to have them saved at all, at any time.”

“Customers can import their mobile phone contacts to the Alexa app so they can use features like hands-free calling and messaging; this optional feature, which customers need to set up, can be disabled at any time.

“Finally, you can grant permissions for the Alexa app to use certain data, such as your mobile device’s geolocation, to provide relevant results (e.g., weather, traffic, restaurant recommendations), and you can manage these permissions in the app.“

Cell phones are bad enough. I can't fathom why people willingly put this sh*t in their house.

I don’t have any echo, dots, or any of those devices in my home. This is one of the many reason why I don’t have them

Yet

I’m sure other devices are recording and I/ we don’t know how to get those files

Phones
- each app

Video game consoles
- them sh*ts always randomly come on

Fire sticks/ Chromecast
- maybe

Everything is recording something

You have a device in your home that is designed to listen to your voice and activate on demand, and your shocked its has voice clips of you and your location, if you have it synced to call certain people, then it would need access to your phone contacts as well

Its not the government, you're just a moron

man my boy who flips houses been doing these fully connected smart homes with smart locks, nest, smart bulbs, etc. all connected through the Google home platform. I tried to tell him the convenience isn't worth it. Turn your own damn light on to maintain some sort of privacy. I don't want Amazon knowing I'm banging my wife at 9:30pm on a Tuesday and then all of a sudden get KY and condom ads when I go to set my fantasy lineup after we're done.

Exactly. People complain about Amazon, etc. But the apps on their phone keeps tabs on them 24/7. We live in a tech age. There's no way of escaping it unfortunately. If youre connecting to the internet via any device that receives and/or sends out data, you're being recorded. Theres a big a*s folder or folders stored on a server with your data in it.

What is a realistic alternative to a Smartphone in 2021? I really haven’t upgraded yet because I don’t want to pay $1500 for a personal spying tool.

At least Apple gives you a little bit of control over your privacy.

But that’s why their stuff doesn’t work as good as others.

It’s been out over a decade.. everything is recorded in real time and can be accessed at any time in the future. The tv is microphone device also; Edward Snowden had the paperwork.
