How to stop all the voice assistants from storing your voice

From left to right: Amazon Echo with Alexa, Google Home, Apple HomePod, Harman Kardon Invoke with Cortana

Amazon has Alexa on its Echo devices, Fire TV, and Fire tablets, and Alexa is rapidly showing up on other devices, too. Google Assistant is available on Android phones, select Chromebooks, and the Google Home smart speaker – its answer to the Amazon Echo. Microsoft’s Cortana is available on Windows 10, Windows Phone, and powers the Harman Kardon Invoke smart speaker; which is set to be released this fall. Apple’s Siri is available on its iOS devices, macOS Sierra, watchOS, and Apple TV via the Siri remote. Siri will also be featured in the soon to be launched HomePod.

The devices don’t record or transmit any data until the digital assistant is activated by the wake word first – in theory anyway. However, convenience and ease of use will trump security and privacy. After all, the selling point is the how simple it is to get things done — hands-free. However, you might want to have more control and kill the active listening on these devices when not in use.

Amazon Alexa

If you have an Amazon Echo device with Alexa such as the Tap, Dot, Show, or Look the easiest thing to do is mute the microphone by pressing the Microphone button when you don’t want it listening. Then it’s essentially just a Bluetooth speaker and Alexa doesn’t work. Your voice activity isn’t recorded until you say the wake word which is “Alexa” by default, but you can change the wake word on your Echo, too.

How to stop all the voice assistants from storing your voice

Google Assistant

With Google Assistant the wake word is “Ok, Google” and is available on Android phones, Google Home, Chromebooks, and via the Google app for iOS. Like the Amazon Echo, press the mute button on the side to prevent its microphones from listening.

How to stop all the voice assistants from storing your voice

To turn it on or off on your Android device, open the Google app and go to Settings > Voice > ”Ok Google” detection. Here you can train or retrain it to understand your voice alone. It’s called “Trusted Voice,” and (depending on the model) allows active listening even if the phone is locked. Turn it off to disable active listening. Note that when you turn it off, you can still use voice search, but you need to tap the microphone icon on the search bar first.

How to stop all the voice assistants from storing your voice

On iOS “Ok Google” only works in the Google app. You can turn off active listening by tapping your account icon at the top to bring up Settings. Then tap Voice Search and turn the “Ok Google” hotword on or off.

How to stop all the voice assistants from storing your voice

Microsoft’s Cortana

All Windows 10 computers and mobile devices come with Cortana built-in. The wake word is “Hey, Cortana” and you’ll first need to make sure it’s enabled for voice interaction. For more on that, check out our article on how to turn the “Hey Cortana” feature on or off. You just need to switch it off to disable active listening.

How to stop all the voice assistants from storing your voice

If you own an Xbox console, you can turn Cortana off by heading to Settings > All Settings > Cortana Settings.

Apple’s Siri

Siri has come a long way since it was first introduced for iOS. Now you’ll find it on macOS Sierra, watchOS, and tvOS on Apple TV. It’s also coming to Apple’s soon to be released HomePod smart speaker.

How to stop all the voice assistants from storing your voice

At the time of this writing, the Siri active listening technology only works with iOS devices and the HomePod. To manage it, head to Settings > Siri and flip the Allow “Hey Siri” switch on or off. For this to work without having the device plugged in, you need to have a modern version of the iPhone – 6S or newer. Older versions of the iPhone and iPad need to be plugged in for the full hands-free experience.

How to stop all the voice assistants from storing your voice

It’s also worth mentioning that these devices keep a history of your voice searches and other commands. The claim is the recordings help your device be more responsive by anticipating what you’ll say. If the idea of having a history of your voice activity recorded and saved, you do have the option to delete it and we have covered a few of them.

Whether it’s Google, Apple, Amazon, or Microsoft, do you find your digital assistant convenient or creepy? Leave a comment below and let us know.

How to stop all the voice assistants from storing your voice

Amazon

Amazon is rolling out new privacy features today for Alexa. In addition to an educational “privacy hub,” the company lets you delete your stored recordings by voice. But it’s off by default; you’ll need to flip a switch.

Every time you use Alexa’s wake word, it sends off your voice to Amazon’s servers. Amazon keeps your recording indefinitely, and unlike with Google Assistant, you can’t prevent that behavior. Until now, your only recourse was to either use the Alexa app or log into Amazon’s privacy dashboard to delete your recordings by hand.

Now, Amazon is working to give you a better understanding of its privacy policies and a quicker method to delete your recordings.

Amazon Introduces a Privacy Hub and Voice Deletion

How to stop all the voice assistants from storing your voice

Amazon’s new privacy hub, unveiled on May 29, 2019, is a centralized place to read about Alexa privacy policies and how features like the wake word and indicator lights work. It also provides access to Alexa’s privacy settings. In the past, you had to find all this information strewn across different web pages, so it’s nice to see all the information in one place.

But the more important new feature Amazon just introduced is the ability to delete some of your stored recordings by talking to Alexa. “Some of” being the key words here–you can’t delete anything older than today’s commands by voice.

While Amazon is rolling this feature out to everyone, it’s an opt-in process. The company explains that once turned on, anyone with access to your Echo devices can delete your recordings, so the idea is to give you control of your data and prevent “unintended deletions.” It’s an odd choice because Alexa does confirm your intention before deleting the recordings.

How to stop all the voice assistants from storing your voice

To opt-in, log into the Alexa Privacy Dashboard, click on “Review Voice History” and then flip the “Enable deletion by voice” toggle. Now you’ll be able to either say “delete everything I said today.” According to Engadget, you should also be able to say “delete what I just said” but that didn’t work in our testing, and Amazon’s site doesn’t make any reference to that command. Perhaps that feature is coming.

More control of your voice recordings is a definite win, but we still hope Alexa will follow Google’s lead and let you use Alexa without storing your voice recordings. Nevertheless, we’ll take what we can get.

Smart devices like smartphones, computers, and TVs have an Accessibility Menu to help people with disabilities like visual and hearing impairment. While the voice assistant or Audio Description feature on LG Smart TV can be helpful to people with weak eyesight, it might be very irritating to those who don’t have any problem. In this tutorial, we’ll check out the steps to turn off Google Assistant, Audio Description, or voice guidance on LG TV.

When the voice assistant or voice guidance on your LG Smart TV is enabled, you’ll get audio feedback while browsing the menu and selecting options. Moreover, the audio description also works while using apps like Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, Disney+, Apple TV, web browser, etc. Thus, if your LG TV is reading or describing the menu out loud, it means you have activated audio guidance accidentally or unintentionally. You must turn off the Audio Description feature to make it stop talking.

If you think your TV has too many apps installed on it, don’t forget to read my tutorial describing the steps to delete and manage apps on LG TV.

The voice guidance feature is found on all smart devices and is branded with different names by different manufacturers. Thus, Android devices have Talkback mode, and on Samsung Smart Smart TVs, the voice assistant is present as Voice Guide. All LG LED, OLED or Nano-cell TVs have the Audio Description feature that can be enabled or disabled from Accessibility settings.

Note: When Audio Description or Guidance is enabled on your LG TV, the on-screen pointer or cursor will stop working.

Turning Off Audio Description on LG TV

If you don’t have bad vision, you really don’t a voice assistant to read out the contents on the screen aloud and will find the voice-over on your LG TV irritating.

  1. Since the LG TV remote doesn’t have a Menu button, press the Settings button to access the Settings menu.
  2. Navigate to All Settings using the down arrow button on the navigational pad.How to stop all the voice assistants from storing your voice
  3. When you have entered the LG TV Settings screen, navigate to Accessibility, and select it by pressing the center scroll button.

Turning Off Google Assistant on LG TV

All LG Smart TVs offer the integration of Google Assistant and Alexa under the voice control option. Having set up the voice control service, you can control your TV using Alexa or Google Assistant commands.

Google Assistant is a very convenient feature. If you don’t like it, you can set up Alexa instead. However, if you encounter the “Meet your Google Assistant” screen every time you turn on your LG TV, there’s an easy way to get rid of that.

How to stop all the voice assistants from storing your voice

By default, the “Meet your Google Assistant” screen pops up automatically without pressing the microphone button when the TV is powered on. The screen offers only a “Continue” button and that means that there no option except to click it and go through the Google Assistant privacy agreement and accept it. By following the steps described below you can stop this annoying screen from appearing.

Below is how you can turn off Google Assistant on your LG Smart TV.

  1. Press the Settings button on your remote and select All Settings from the list of icons that pops up.
  2. When you have entered the LG TV Settings menu, select General. On newer OLED and Nano-cell TVs, you’ll find the ‘User Agreements‘ option under About This TV.How to stop all the voice assistants from storing your voice
  3. Now, scroll down to User Agreements and uncheck everything except the Terms of Use.How to stop all the voice assistants from storing your voice
  4. Then select the Agree option.How to stop all the voice assistants from storing your voice
  5. Your TV will reboot to apply the changes and when it turns on again the “Meet your Google Assistant” screen won’t bother you anymore.

Please note that the above method will disable the microphone button on the LG remote control and that means you won’t be able to use any voice command at all.

How to stop all the voice assistants from storing your voice

Improve your privacy with a few clicks.

People were understandably freaked out when reports surfaced in 2019 that Google and Amazon were giving human contractors access to audio clips from their customers’ Google Home (now Google Nest ) and Echo devices . Google has since made a change , requiring you to opt in to having voice searches recorded in the first place — and opting in also allows for human review, though audio is anonymized. (Google does this to improve personalization across its platform.)

If you don’t remember whether you opted in or not, or if you opted in and now regret it, it’s worth taking time to see what Google’s recorded about you. Even though Google changed its stance on recording voice searches, the rest of your Google ecosystem activity might still be getting saved for posterity, no opt-in required.

You can find all of your Google activity, from Google Maps navigation to search engine queries, in the My Activity section of your Google account. You can read a list in the Google Home app or actually listen to your own voice search history (if it has indeed been recorded). Fortunately, you can easily purge your account of all these recordings.

Keep on top of the latest news, how-to and reviews on Google-powered devices, apps and software.

Delete your Google Assistant voice recordings on your PC

1. Go to myactivity.google.com on desktop. If you have multiple Gmail accounts, make sure you’re signed into the one associated with your Google Home device.

2. Click Web & App Activity.

3. Choose Manage Activity.

4. Click Filter by date & product.

5. Check Voice and Audio in the list of Google Products and click Apply.

From there, you can view a chronological list of all the commands you’ve given your device. You can manually tap the X to delete commands one by one, or you can set a date range to clear a larger set of commands.

Delete your Google Assistant voice recordings on your phone

Unfortunately, you can’t filter by date and product in the Google Home app yet. You can only filter by date, so you either have to delete commands one at a time, delete everything or your web activity gets lumped in. It works on mobile browsers though.

1. Go to myactivity.google.com on mobile browser. If you have multiple Gmail accounts, make sure you’re signed into the one associated with your Google Home device.

2. Tap Filter by date & product.

3. Scroll down and tap Voice & Audio.

From here, it’ll work the same as if you were deleting recordings on desktop.

How to stop all the voice assistants from storing your voice

Apple will stop storing audio recordings of what users say to Siri unless they explicitly opt in, following a privacy backlash against the widespread practice of humans listening to users’ voice clips without their knowledge.

The phone maker apologised to users and promised that in future only Apple employees, not outside contractors, would listen to audio from users who gave their permission.

Apple’s listening programme was suspended earlier this month after a whistleblower revealed that contractors listening to audio clips had overheard drug deals, couples having sex and sensitive medical information.

The company now says it will restart the programme this Autumn, but only for users who choose to be part of it and only after its next operating system update becomes available.

Google, Facebook and Microsoft have all been forced to suspend the controversial practice, which is used to improve AI speech recognition systems but which was not explicitly disclosed to users in their privacy policies. Amazon continues to use human listeners.

"At Apple, we believe privacy is a fundamental human right," said the company. "We design our products to protect users’ personal data, and we are constantly working to strengthen those protections.

"We know that customers have been concerned by recent reports of people listening to audio Siri recordings as part of our Siri quality evaluation process — which we call grading. We heard their concerns, immediately suspended human grading of Siri requests and began a thorough review of our practices and policies.

"As a result of our review, we realize we haven’t been fully living up to our high ideals, and for that we apologise."

The company said it would still let humans read computer-generated transcripts but that Apple employees will not know the identities of the users whose clips they listen to.

The practice of using human ears to check AI assistants’ work, without explicitly asking users for permission, has drawn criticism from privacy advocates and scrutiny from data protection authorities.

AI voice assistants are frequently activated by accident and may record audio that their users never intended them to hear. Last year Amazon’s Alexa misinterpreted a private conversation happening in the background as a series of requests for it to record the conversation and send the recording to one of its owners’ friends.

Apple’s whistleblower told the Guardian that there had been "countless instances of recordings featuring private discussions" including "seemingly criminal dealings" and "sexual encounters", in part because Siri often interprets the sound of a zip as a human voice saying its name.

If your iPhone or iPad is talking to you and you notice outlines around different areas of your screen or where you’re tapping, you may have VoiceOver turned on. VoiceOver is an accessibility feature in iOS for users who are blind or have low-vision, however if you haven’t turned it on intentionally, you’ll probably want to turn it off. Follow along for how to return your device back to normal.

There are two common ways that VoiceOver is turned on unintentionally. First, your iPhone may have a triple-click shortcut turned on to control accessibility features. To find out, do a triple-click on your iPhone or iPad Home button to see if it turns off VoiceOver.

If that didn’t do the trick, you can also tell Siri “turn off VoiceOver.” If you’re still having issues follow along below for how to manually turn off VoiceOver. If you have gotten it turned off successfully it’s still valuable to keep reading to double-check you don’t have a triple-click shortcut turned on and learn where these features are in iOS Settings.

If you have Touch ID enabled you should be able to use it to unlock your iPhone. If you don’t use Touch ID, press the Home button if you’re screen looks like the bottom left photo below (if you’re running an older version of iOS with Slide to Unlock on the bottom of the screen, tap once to select it and double tap it to unlock your iPhone).

How to stop all the voice assistants from storing your voice

You should now see the Enter Passcode screen. Tap once to select the first number of your passcode and double-tap enter that number. Repeat this for each number or character for your passcode.

Next, navigate to Settings like the photo below. Tap once to select and double-tap to launch the Settings app. Do the same for General → Accessibility.

How to stop all the voice assistants from storing your voice

VoiceOver will be at the very top. You’re almost there! Tap to select, and then double-tap to enter VoiceOver settings. One last time do the same things on the VoiceOver toggle to turn it off.

How to stop all the voice assistants from storing your voice

Tap Accessibility in the top left corner of your screen and Off should appear to the right of VoiceOver like the photo below on the left. And let’s check out one last thing to make sure there isn’t a triple-click shortcut turned on. Scroll down to the very bottom of the Accessibility settings. If next to Accessibility Shortcut it shows Off you’re all set. If it shows something like VoiceOver or anything else, we’ll want to tap on Accessibility Shortcut and uncheck the triple-click shortcuts.

How to stop all the voice assistants from storing your voice

Tap on any of these that have a check mark like the photo above on the right to turn off the shortcut (this will prevent accidental activation of these features). Now your settings should look like this, you’re all set!

Voice Assistant and
Voice Assistant Tutorial

Voice Assistant can act as your eyes when you’re using your phone. Its features give you maximal control of your phone even if you can’t see it. When Voice Assistant is on, your phone provides spoken feedback to help blind and low-vision users. For example, it describes what you touch, select and activate. You can also edit text or change various settings such as volume or speech rates through familiar swipe and tap gestures.

Navigating your phone

When you interact with an item on the screen, a rectangular focus surrounds it. You can use tap and swipe gestures with your fingers to control the focus. When you move it around the screen, Voice Assistant will tell you what it is.

• To hear what’s directly under your finger tap and drag your finger around the screen.

• To activate an item double tap with 1 finger.

• To move the focus box to another item on the screen swipe left or right with 1 finger.
