Smart assistants such Apple’s Siri and Amazon’s Alexa are now integrated into many of our lives. However, a common concern with Alexa relates to the device recording and storing users’ conversations.
Fortunately for Alexa users, there is a method to listen to the recordings of your conversations, before erasing them for ever.
Voice recordings are used to improve the accuracy of your interactions with Alexa
Somewhat surprisingly many Alexa owners are unaware why Silicon Valley giant Amazon records voice in the first place.
Amazon said in a statement: “Voice recordings are used to improve the accuracy of your interactions with Alexa.
“Deleting voice recordings associated with your account may degrade your experience.”
How to delete Amazon Alexa recordings:
Begin by opening the Alexa app and visit the Settings menu.
Next select Settings, then Alexa Privacy and then select an entry or review a specific date range.

Then select the text you wish to hear, and then click the Play icon.
Those who wish to delete a recording should tick the empty box next to it, before tapping Delete Selected Recordings.
Users can alternatively visit https://www.amazon.co.uk/alexaprivacysettings on your web browser to change your settings.
How to deactivate Amazon Alexa human review:
Tech giant Amazon last year offered Alexa owners a method for opting out of their voice recordings being manually reviews by the company.
To deactivate human review, open the Amazon Alexa app on your smartphone and go to Settings.
Next go to Alexa privacy and select Manage How Your Data Improves Alexa.
You will arrive at a page that explains: “Training Alexa with recordings from a diverse range of customers helps ensure Alexa works well for everyone.
“With this setting on, your voice recordings may be used to develop new features and manually reviewed to help improve our services.
“Only an extremely small fraction of voice recordings are manually reviewed.”
Amazon warns you deactivating the setting will mean “new features may not work well for you”.
However, if you would rather your private recordings remained private, flick the switch off.
