Unfortunately, it’s the same with most tech giants these days (including Apple which boasts about its privacy policies). Be it Amazon, Meta, Google, or any other, most of the major tech giants in the world record your activities, including eating preferences and a lot more.
In the last several years, Amazon has been in the limelight due to its recording features especially on its Alexa-powered smart speakers. If you have Alexa at home, you will be surprised to know that your smart speaker knows you more than you know yourself. Weird, right?
Alexa records almost everything you converse with her about. Whether you ask her to order your favorite food to add a certain product to your shopping list, Alexa knows it all. The smart speaker knows your likes and dislikes, who you speak to the most, and every other thing.
It’s not just your Alexa device as the Amazon website also works in a similar manner. For instance, if you visit the Amazon shopping app/website, it will log your browsing history and shopping data. Like all other tech websites/ devices, Amazon records these data with the aim to provide a better user experience as per their preferences.
If you use Amazon platforms/devices in your day-to-day life and want to check all data the tech giant records of you, there’s a way out. Check out the step-by-step process here.
