Several stories and accusations have been going around about Apple’s Siri and other voice-to-text services, asserting that they are recording what you say and that people actually listen.
Now I say “accusations” because many people are questioning the veracity of some of these claims, mainly those from Reddit user FallenMyst.
However, they aren’t accusations. The iOS terms clearly state that Apple will record what you say and may send it to subsidiaries and their agents. It goes on to add that they will record the names of your contacts, your relationships with them, in-home devices, and sometimes your location.
I don’t find this surprising at all, so it’s interesting to see some people question whether this is happening.
We are carrying little tracking devices around with us that record what we say. And the worst part is that we all clicked “I agree.”
