So most of the users had not anticipated: When talking with his Amazon Echo, there is the possibility that it will not get to hear only the assistant to Alexa. Also 7000 Amazon employees get the daily records from the home of the user.

According to the paper, many of them will get the sensitive data on a special program even delivered directly to your home.

Amazon confirmed the searches at the request of the “world”. “Some employees allowed to work from other locations; however, strict safety measures and policies must apply to each and every employee to keep” the newspaper quoted a spokesman for the group.
