Sneaky Alexa Sends Stealth Recording Of Boss's Conversation To Employee

2018-05-26 09:15
Amazon says an 'unlikely string of events' led an Oregon couple's Alexa device to record their private conversation and send it to a person on their contacts list. According to Digital Trends, Amazon engineers believe the device misunderstood a conversation and "thought" it was being instructed to record the conversation and deliver it to one of the couple's employees. The couple was at first amused by the incident, then became alarmed and unplugged all their "smart" devices. Amazon has so far refused to refund them for their Echo device, which they say they will never use again.
