I don't use the wifi at work, it's slow. I am on my cell data.

At home, no one is on my network but me. I know this, my router logs all connections and connection attempts.

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?


He knows what he knows.



Explanation: He included the disclaimer "that i know of" therefore your question reads as "how can you be sure of what you know?" rather than "how can you be sure your phone doesn't send anything?" as you probably intended. He or she already admitted they are not sure. Then you asked how they could be sure of that? "That" being the disclaimer that the information shared is only as accurate to the extent that it is the totallity of this one single persons knowledge on the subject.

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??
How???



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 see Alexa as a Early Step of Proteus IV a ( BIO Computer ) ( Dean Kootz ( Demon Seed ) or Colossus ( the Forbin Project )

just Imagine if Amazon Uses RNA Cells on the Server, as a Self Thinking Self Aware network system ..
as was Shown in 1977 Movie/Book Demon Seed, The Reality is We have the Technology of Real BIO Computers Now .
just a Matter of Time they will be Used in Servers ,

a Little Info of How Proteus IV Operates and what it made of

a Clip from the Movie Mind you its 1977 a WOW!!

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?

The reason Alexa and other appliances are so "aware" of your personal info is because we let them. Every time we install, download, click "Agree" on a disclaimer or grant permissions of an app to use functions of our phones etc, we're saying YES - use my info.

One nice provision of the newly enacted GDPR is that upon request - a company must disclose if they have personally identifying information and who they share it with. In the EU this is law. Not sure if it extends to US-based people.
My company had to create facilities to handle both.

Spied on how? Explain if you would. It doesn't record everything.. only the gullible think so.

I visited an assisted living place with Alexa in the lobby and no one around except relatives. I said Alexa okay Metallica playlist or Sandman. Soon the old folks home had better music. I was surprised it listens to anyone walking in and responds. It wouldn't surprise me if Alexa plays Metallica again at the old folks home.
