Personal assistant like Siri, Cortana, Alexa, Google Assistant, etc. are making our life more comfortable and fun but these voice assistants are not as private as you might think. Amazon was revealed to employ staff to listen to the Alexa recordings; actually, the company behind those services tend to have employees or contractors to review the voice clips of its users and improve the quality of the voice assistant. Not only that, but even Google workers were found saving user’s recordings to enhance it’s AI assistant skills.
In this post I'm talking about this topic as the Guardian reported that Apple contractors have been listening to your conversation to improve the quality of Siri.
The Guardian reports claim that Apple’s Siri listens to conversations like the recordings of couples having sex, drug deals, secret informations, etc. Though Apple doesn’t clearly exhibit that it sends users’ Siri recordings to its contractors, but they have confirmed that it stores a small portion (around 1%) of the recordings to improve siri.
Apple said to The Guardian, ‘A small portion of Siri requests are analyzed to improve Siri and dictation. User requests are not associated with the user’s Apple ID. Siri’s responses are analyzed in secure facilities and all reviewers are under the obligation to adhere to Apple’s strict confidentiality requirements.”
