Echo Dot with Clock Privacy Report
While there haven’t been any issues with the Echo Dot with Clock specifically in terms of surveillance, some media outlets have reported that Amazon employees listen to Alexa recordings, and that’s true across all Echo devices. However, Amazon has several safeguards in place such as encryption, mandatory passwords, and two and multi-factor authentication, so the speaker is secure from hacking, just not inner-company surveillance.
