I'm willing to bet that those that complain about these devices or can't believe why anyone would have them in their home or turned on are the same with a smart phone in their pocket. Spying will be focused to your smart phone before alexa, google, siri, or what ever else is to collect data. Just so you all know... Lastly, devices like Alexa don't transmit any data unless the keyword is triggered and for up 5 minutes after triggered. The misconception about that they spy on you is idiotic especially here on [H] forums where anyone and their brother should know how to put it on its own network and monitor network traffic regarding it. Simple routers allow you to do this even.
