Amazon Alexa Privacy

Your trust is the most important thing to us. We want to make sure you feel safe and confident. Here are answers to common privacy questions about Alexa and Echo devices.

No. By default, Echo devices are designed to detect only your chosen wake word (Alexa, Amazon, Computer, or Echo). The device detects the wake word by identifying acoustic patterns that match the wake word. No audio is stored or sent to the cloud unless the device detects the wake word (or Alexa is activated by pressing a button). With Alexa Guard, you can also configure supported Echo devices to detect specific sounds, such as the sound of smoke alarms, carbon monoxide alarms, and glass breaking.

When you speak to Alexa, a recording of what you asked Alexa is sent to Amazon’s cloud, where we process your request and other information to respond to you. For example, when you ask, “Alexa, play top hits from Amazon Music,” we use the recording of your request and information from Amazon Music to play top hits.

Any time audio is sent to the cloud, a visual indicator appears on your Echo device. For instance, the light ring on Amazon Echo will turn blue or a blue bar will appear on Echo Show. You can also configure certain Echo devices to play a short audible tone any time audio is sent to the cloud.

Yes. Our Echo devices are equipped with a microphone off button. When the button is pressed, the power to the microphones is disconnected and a dedicated red light is illuminated. When the microphones are turned off, your device cannot stream audio to the cloud, even when you say your chosen wake word.

Yes. You can review voice recordings associated with your account and delete those voice recordings one by one, by date range, by Alexa-enabled device, or all at once by visiting Settings > Alexa Privacy in the Alexa app or at amazon.com/alexaprivacysettings. From either page, you can also choose to have your voice recordings older than 3 or 18 months deleted automatically. And you can delete all the voice recordings associated with your account all at once for each of your Alexa-enabled devices and apps by visiting Manage Your Content and Devices.

You can also enable the ability to delete your recordings by voice. Once enabled, you can delete the voice recording of your last request by saying “Alexa, delete what I just said” or you can delete all the voice recordings from your account for the day by saying “Alexa, delete everything I said today.” To enable deletion by voice go to Settings > Alexa Privacy > Review Voice History in the Alexa app or amazon.com/alexaprivacysettings. When enabled, anyone with access to your Alexa-enabled devices can ask Alexa to delete voice recordings from your account.

Caregiver FAQs

  1. The Briocare App is how the entire family can stay connected with their elderly loved one. After downloading the Briocare app from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store, family members can help add medication reminders, care nudges, event notifications, and much more within seconds.
  1. Yes! While we take great pride in helping older adults and caregivers in an array of situations, we know that remote caregiving is an extremely stressful task. Therefore, caregivers through the caregiver app can stay connected and share voice reminders and care nudges that play on their loved one’s Echo device. By being able to schedule months of care nudges within seconds, it has never been easier to help your loved ones when living in a different city or state!

As long as you have the application on your phone and are logged into the same account, which is connected to the elder profile, you can add events, notes, and reminders for the same parent. Our goal is to promote family connection and easy coordination. This is one of the best ways to do so.
  1. Yes! Since Briocare is not only set up for family members but also professional caregivers, we allow a single Briocare app to connect to as many elder profiles as needed. Each elder profile does come with associated costs.

Therefore, based on the different health conditions that you select when signing up, your elderly loved one will receive specialized tips.
