For all the willfully ignorant/terminally ill-informed people who claim Siri and Alexa are not eavesdropping, and people who thought so were paranoid - Amazon ADMITS it:
"Amazon Sidewalk Shares Your Home WiFi with the Neighbors
We always suspected that the Amazon Echo resting quietly in your family room was more insidious than it seemed. Now we have confirmation.
We know that the Echo can hear us. We also know that it records private conversations in your home if the device thinks it hears the word “Alexa,' and that Amazon can also listen to those conversations. A former Amazon executive admitted as much last year. "
