Google has released a new feature that lets you tell it to automatically delete the data it keeps about you, but it’s not complete. It’s very specifically about your web and app use, and there is much else that Google keeps elsewhere. One of the perhaps most unsettling, though, turns out to be another one you can do something about. You can erase the audio recordings your Amazon Echo device has made of you.
You might well not have even realised that it’s recording you if it weren’t for news breaking of Amazon workers listening to the audio.
