Re: Alexa Amazon Dot

Interesting tech stuff. But you are inviting the world to listen in to every word spoken in your house; a hacker who gets access to it listens to everything you say, and you will not know anything about it. It is listening for every spoken word 24/7.

She doesn't wake up until you say the key word, so I have my doubts about that theory,............tho I'm quite sure she's aware of Steve's favorites pastime.....haha.

Amusing, but wrong. To hear the key word "she" must be listening. In fact there are a number of reports doing the rounds about the risks involved - probably not high risk in most houses, but risks nevertheless.

Funny coincidence, read this in Friday´s paper:

Hackers could use Amazon Echo to steal bank details | Daily Mail Online

I was also looking for the link where the Microsoft boss puts tape over his camera lens on his computer for fear of hacking.

Paranoid? Perhaps.
At risk? No.

Re: Alexa Amazon Dot

Have sorted the little bugger by downloading the app from the American site direct to my computer and using the app from there, now the next problem is i cannot download the Amazon unlimited music as I have not got a American credit card which i need as I downloaded the app from America. So the question is can I download the music from the English site and will it load to my Echo Dot.?
