RoyceNewton this is for you as you continue to use Alexa


More people are jumping on board to use these things but caution should be used because they’re not at safe.

Someone can hack your system and control it.

Your personal info is out there because it’s on your WiFi if you didn’t firewall but it’s been shown that a hacker was able gain control with the firewall up

The device can record your conversation and send it out which has happened

It has been reported several times the device called the person who was being talked about and allowed them to listen to the entire conversation without informing the users it had did so. The person was nice enough to let info his friend what Alexa had done Good things nothing was said that could harm that friendship

I watched several movie where someone had a smart house and the house turned on them. The house tried to kill them

Then there was a movie where there was a smart car that trapped the mother outside the car and the child inside the car and things went down hill from there as the child was almost killed.

So the moral of the story don’t make Alexa or your smart devices turn on you.

No AI for me. I can get up
