Thousands of Amazon employees are listening to everything that happens in the privacy of your home, which for many is a violation of privacy.

The technology giant confirmed that it uses these recordings to, according to Amazon, improve voice detection and the operation of the smart speaker.

All the information of what is heard in the audio clips, is transcribed, and later it is reintroduced in the computer system or software.

According to the company, Amazon takes the privacy and security of its clients very seriously, so it says, that they only use a small part of the annotations, and that there is the possibility of turning off this option to record conversations, entering on the settings page in the Alexa application.
