Echo Show 8 Privacy Report

Privacy Rating
Amazon Echo Show 8  - Product Header Image

Amazon does unfortunately share user information with third parties like domain names of sites visited and IP addresses. That said, that’s pretty standard in the industry. Where Amazon really earns points though is with their top-level encryption and automatic software updates. There’s even a bug bounty program if you’re interested in tracking down glitches and vulnerabilities.
