Responding to rising complaints about violation of privacy, Amazon's Digital Assistant got a new feature which will ensure the privacy of its users is protected. On May 29, Alexa added the ability to ignore or forget what it had heard or received in a move to enhance online safety of the location and privacy of its users.
Earlier, many situations were reported where inter-linked smart speakers with built-in microphones or cameras intruded the private conversations and users were exposed to privacy threats.
To address such concerns, Amazon came with the idea of Amnesia skill which tends to forget everything it heard or captured in a while with just a command” Alexa, delete Everything I said today”.
The exciting new feature which provides the controls for shared information will be added to an Alexa privacy hub. This allows the microphones and cameras to be turned off. So, the amnesia feature can aid Alexa to not remember the sensitive conversations.
