There are a great number of security issues that plague the world of Smart Home assistants. Apart from storing your voice recordings there are added disadvantages that range from someone else using your smart home assistant to order things to a hacker listening to your confidential talks and gaining access to data stored on your smart assistant servers.
The companies claim that these recordings are stored to train their AI, in order to make the voice recognition experience better for users.
But if you’re concerned, you have the option of taking control and deleting them from your side — though you can’t be completely sure that your recordings have been deleted from the company servers as well.
