How Amazon Echo Users Can Control Privacy

Ajay Arora, co-founder and CEO of Vera, says that setting up an “always on” device like an Amazon Echo in your house is essentially like inviting Big Brother into your home. “It’s important to be cautious when bringing such devices into your home. There have been numerous reports of IoT devices such as baby monitors being hacked and strangers watching and talking to your children. Another example is when Samsung admitted their smart TVs are always listening for their commands–urging users to not say anything you wouldn’t say in public in front of your TV.”
