ALEXA SEX BAN Amazon forced to give Alexa users the option to stop staff listening to recordings...

•, Daniel Jones

AMAZON finally gave its Alexa users the option to block recordings of them having sex.

It came after we revealed last week that staff have regularly listened in when smart speakers pick up private conversations and other, saucier activities.

Amazon is now updating the settings to let users opt out.

Each time the intelligent assistant hears the wake-up phrase "Alexa" — or thinks it has — it records what it hears.

Employees listen to some recordings to work out why Alexa gets requests wrong or is wrongly activated.

Apple and Google had already suspended the practice of humans reviewing recordings.

Amazon has not gone that far but insisted: "We take customer privacy seriously and continuously review our practices and procedures.
