3. Delete Alexa recordings

Deleting your recordings prevents the company from hearing your private conversations, but be warned it may also affect Alexa’s ability to understand you as well. Step one, done. Now that you’ve cleared out all your stored recordings, you can set up Alexa to automatically purge future recordings via voice command. Here’s how you can instruct Alexa to automatically delete recordings:

On the Alexa app, log in and go to Settings, followed by Alexa Account.Select Alexa Privacy, then Review Voice History.Slide the toggle to the right that says Enable deletion by voice.

You can also access these settings on your computer. Click here to visit the Alexa privacy page. Make sure to slide the toggle here as well. Now you can ask Alexa to delete your recordings by saying, “Alexa, delete everything I said today.”

4. Delete your public-facing profile

Here’s how you can hide your publicly-facing profile information: You can select specific items you want to hide on this page, or hide your entire profile by checking the box that says Hide all activity on your profile. Click Save when you’re finished to complete the process. If you want a quick look at what information others can see, click “View your profile as a visitor.” You can tell at a glance if you’re sharing anything you don’t want to. If you want to save any recordings for whatever reason, you can also access the clips directly from the Cloud Cam settings page and delete them one at a time. Select the Radio button from one or more videos from the list and click on the trash can icon to delete it. You can also select Clear below any video you’re viewing to delete it.
