Many people report strange targeted adverts showing up after a specific conversation with someone. The general consensus is that our mobile devices and smart tech is monitoring us, which is possible as everything seems to contain a microphone now… even television remotes.
Often these microphones are constantly listening for a certain keyword; “Okay Google”, “Hey Siri” or “Alexa….”. These can be used to trigger a command but the rest of the time, they may pick up idle chatter.
Luckily reputatable companies will have a way to view and delete your voice commands and other data easily within their interface. This can be done easily by following these steps:
Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/myx –> Your Devices –> Alexa Privacy –> Delete All Recordings
Google: https://history.google.com/history/ –> Delete Activity By (choose timeframe)
Siri: Quit Safari on your iPhone –> Settings –> Safari –> Clear History
Always remember there is a direct corralation between connectivity and security. The more you have of one, the less you have of the other.
