That’s insane. My cell phone may record everything all the time, but at least it doesn’t send it to people.
That I know anyway.
How can you be sure of that?

What I want to know is how it accessed the Contacts list?
I mean, I can see accessing the Contacts on my phone....but ....Alexa??
When you sign up for Alexa Calling and Messaging from the Alexa app, all of the contacts saved to your mobile phone are linked to Alexa automatically. Alexa uses this information to find people or numbers to contact through your compatible Echo devices and the Alexa app. Note: If you've previously used Alexa Calling and Messaging on an Echo device or the Alexa app, your mobile phone contacts are imported automatically for Alexa Calling and Messaging on any supported Fire, Android, or iOS tablet.

I laugh at all the knuckleheads who bought one of these in house spy devices and thought that they weren't going to be spied on. What the hell is wrong with you idiots?
