Video: Alexa on Fire Tablets

Amazon designs Alexa with multiple layers of privacy protection:

  • When you want to talk to Alexa, you have to first wake up your tablet by using the wake word (for example, "Alexa") or another wake word that you have set up. Only then does the device begin recording and sending your request to Amazon's secure cloud.
  • All of your interactions with Alexa are encrypted in transit to Amazon's cloud where they are securely stored.
  • You'll always know when Alexa is recording and sending your request to Amazon's secure cloud because a blue light bar appears on your tablet.
  • To view, hear, or delete your recordings, go to Alexa Privacy Hub or the Alexa app. To delete by voice, say, "Delete what I just said," or "Delete everything I said today."
  • To disable Alexa hands-free, use the Alexa Hands-Free Mode on/off switch in your tablet settings.
