    • +3 votes

      Have a quick look at this portion of a video on Bezos and his Amazon Sidewalk network, built out of Amazon devices using your network bandwidth.
      tl;dw: Almost all of these echo & ring cameras have a 900 MHz transmitter and receiver inbuilt, creating it's own mesh network within 1/2 mile of all other devices.
      You can't even opt out of the network because if anyone else has the device around you, they can still track you.
      Since devices are tied to an address, if it can identify you via a bluetooth signature and the echo device can detect you it can know where you are as long as you're in range of the mesh network.

      My iPhone listens to my conversations 24/7 anyways…

      • +1 vote

        Only if you have voice activation enabled? In theory, any device can be hacked into but we have built huge dependency on mobile phones in today's world. So it is almost impossible to get rid of that risk. However, that doesn't necessarily mean we can freely add more such devices imho.

    • +3 votes

      Have you ever wondered why Amazon Echo is so cheap?

      Well, the reason is that the built-in circuitry for Echo doesn't really process speech the way most people think it does. Instead, it links back to the Amazon database so essentially all your voice commands are being stored and logged to Amazon servers and transcribed there. Yes, they are in effect, spying on you when it is on and storing any voice interaction in the vicinity so they can better utilise the personal information to sell to 3rd party vendors or to track your habits on you or to send it to government organisations.

      That is true. The microphone on these devices is ALWAYS on. In addition, Amazon employees have also been known to transcribe actual conversations.

      The moment you say,"Hey Alexa…" whatever you said will automatically transcribed by Alexa and go into your online Amazon account.

      •  

        Does it mean if we buy a more expensive device they won't do this?

        • +2 votes

          Voice will almost always be cloud processed.

      •  

        I wouldn't call Alexa devices so cheap. It's cost me about $1,400 to deck my house out with Alexa devices.

        And voice only sent back when you say the wake word, it's not sending anything back if you are just talking to someone in your house for example.

        • +1 vote

          Yeah but how do you verify that? Of course, that's what Amazon tells you the devices do, but how can you hold them to that?

          You could probably set up some sort of packet sniffing solution in your local network, but this won't reveal what the device is actually talking to Amazon about, since the packets will be encrypted. It could be some routine handshake with servers, or it could be packets that contain your voice without you having used the wake word.

          Besides, no one is going to continually monitor their Amazon devices 24/7 to check what they are sending and receiving from Amazon servers.

          So it's really question of trust, since you legitimately have no way of monitoring what these devices are sending or receiving all the time. How much can you really trust Amazon? They could be sending your voice data back without you having used the wake word, and you would be none the wiser.

          • +1 vote

            @theguwithnoname: Ok lets pretend for a minute your Alexa device is sending your voice conversation 24/7 when you are speaking in range of the device (which they dont). What do they have? Your conversation, your postal address, your shopping list, music you listen to and device usage if you have other smart devices paired.

            Now lets look at your mobile phone. It not only has a microphone too but it has a camera and video recorder both front and back and like most people the device is on you 24/7 and not just sitting on a bench in your house like an Alexa. How do you know you phone is not recording your voice plus video?

            Now lets add the fact your phone also has a GPS which logs your location, every place you go, the speed you are traveling etc. A gyroscope and accelerometer, It has a compass, proximity sensor, Bluetooth, wifi, NFC, Ultra Wide Band, fingerprint scanner, facial recognition, all your contacts and their phone numbers, phone conversations, websites you visit, payment info and logins, cell tower data and the list goes on.

            Add to that most Android users have somewhere north of 60 apps installed on average. Many come out of India, Russia etc with questionable permissions linked to a developer with just a free gmail.com email address. Tons of apps have been yanked from the play store due to malicious code, some quite popular with a huge userbase. And to think you are running these apps on a device with all the above capabilities.

            So tell me, who do you trust?

            • -1 vote

              @LowRange: Other people have made the same argument as you in this thread, and you’re right, it does seem silly to care.

              However, regarding mobile phones, there are some things you can do if you’re smart, like checking the permissions of any suspicious apps on your phone, installing a privacy-focused OS, etc.

              Barring all that, your phone leaves enough of a privacy hole in most of our lives, but I don’t take that as encouragement to go, “oh well, my phone steals my privacy anyway, I guess I’ll go and buy multiple devices with microphones and place them around my house, because how much more of my privacy can I lose really”.

              Also, you’re using the argument of “well, it’s not like I have anything to hide”. Privacy is a basic human right, and it shouldn’t be something that companies exploit to track your activities and serve you better ads.

              For the sake of honesty, I have a few Google Homes around my own house. I recognise the hole they tear in my own privacy, but I consider it a necessary evil to make my life easier. My argument with you here is how the answer you provided to the OP regarding how Smart Speakers listen only after hearing the wake word is really not something that is verifiable, so I called you out on that, because you could be potentially misinforming people on the privacy risks posed by Smart Speakers.

        •  

          You can always sniff packets coming out of these devices and monitor if it communicates with the Alexa server only when you speak to it or while when you're having a conversation. Using a network hub and a PC with Wireshark can do that. I can do it but I can't be bothered.

    • +4 votes

      Amazon wants to hoover up everything about you, so it can target ads to you and sell more stuff, that's it's business model (like Google, Apple, Microsoft, Facebook, etc)

      They care about "privacy" as much as a fox cares about the hens in a coop.

      Amazon Echo, Google Home, etc are not "smart" speakers, but dumb microphones connected to someone else's computer. Hence they are cheap, as jmi pointed out.

    Surely this should be available to Prime members that haven't purchased an Echo yet too….

    Offer applied, but no free trial. Tried on 2x email accounts.
    Perhaps it's linked me through CC or phone to my existing Prime.
    Still, $10+$6.99 ain't bad

      I can still activate free trial about a month ago, using the same CC, but didn't provide phone number.

      Do they change policy now?

      Just make a new email with plus sign trick and don't link your phone number with it.

      Below trick works for me:

      1. Create a new account using the gmail trick
      2. Subscribe prime trial using a $0 balance prepaid mastercard
      3. Buy a $10 amazon giftcard (using another account)
      4. Purchase the Echo Doc Gen 3 and pay with the $10 GC

      Note: the $0 prepaid mastercard was a Coles prepaid mastercard, prime trial won't charge on the card so $0 balance isn't an issue
      When making the $10 payment, it can only pay with the card hasn't been used on any other prime accounts (even trial ones)
      so I just use a $10 giftcard to pay and apply the discount

  • +4 votes

    If they can give it to you for $10, you should wonder how they are making money from this…. pretty clear it is from your information that you will provide this little spy device.

    •  

      they make money by keep asking you to join prime when you're listening amazon music… until one day, you will pay for it, this is an amazon trojan of your wallet. LoL

    Would this work if I made a whole new Amazon account & signed up for Prime?
    (I see people saying just sign up for the trial but idk if it's only for existing Amazon account holders that don't have Prime)

    I subscribed to prime, I can't figure out how to get it? It showed the promotion before subscribing.
    Edit: oh seems like I need to wait for an email

    Edit 2: here's how I got the deal:

    • renewed Prime subscription (I wasn't subscribed but had been previously)
    • got email (filtered to promotions by gmail)
    • clicked link in email
    • added echo dot to cart (showed full price) and clicked checkout
    • discount applied at checkout
    •  

      I did the same, but I didn't receive any promotional coupon etc except received a welcome email. I newly subscribed yesterday and still waiting for the email.
