Intimate moments require privacy

According to reports from Time, CBS News, Forbes, and many more, employees at a certain smart speaker manufacturer were routinely listening to smart speaker recordings of people having very intimate moments. The vocalizations made when two consenting adults are at their closest can trigger a smart speaker to begin recording. Workers then listen to those recorded sessions as part of their daily responsibilities to monitor the system for proper operation.

Have you ever noticed the light on your smart speaker just suddenly turning even when you didn't ask? One Reddit user even claims his smart speaker just randomly chimed in and said "Adding sex to your shopping list". Sometimes tech can be a little too helpful.

Have you ever read a credit card number out loud at home, maybe while making a payment over the phone? Are you comfortable knowing one of these contractors could be listening while you say your card number, expiration date and CVV number?

Or maybe you are on the phone with your bank and they ask for your social security number or your birthdate. Do you want a stranger hearing that? The truth is, you often have conversations that you should be hiding from your smart speaker.

Alexa hears all!

What BuzzOff owners are saying.

Calls with my clients have to be private and I don't know what's being recorded by Amazon. To guard your privacy you need BuzzOff.

We use the Echo more now that we have BuzzOff.

If a friend of mine was on the fence about buying an Echo, I would recommend they buy a BuzzOff and an Echo.
