7. Or not. Alexa is listening to you, too...all the time.

If not, you could not say, "Alexa, what's the temperature outside." And, there is no internal processing going on inside your Echo device. It all happens in the cloud, which Alexa is always connected to. The question to ask is: Does anyone care what I say in my own home? The answer is almost certainly no.

So, you have to weigh the usefulness of technology against your personal privacy concerns. Is the TV watching you? Perhaps, but who is interested in the goings on where your TV is? Anyone? I doubt it very much.
