Amazon’s Alexa is illegally recording kids, lawsuits claim

Alexa, stop recording our kids!

So charge a pair of lawsuits filed against Amazon AMZN, +0.81% this week, as first reported by the Seattle Times, which allege that the devices are breaking the law in at least eight states by recording children who use the smart speakers without consent.

“Alexa routinely records and voiceprints millions of children without their consent or the consent of their parents,” states one complaint filed on behalf of a 10-year-old Massachusetts girl in Seattle federal court on Tuesday. And another, almost identical suit was filed the same day on behalf of an 8-year-old boy in California Superior Court.
