Here’s how to make Alexa stop listening to your conversations
Knowing how to temporarily disable Alexa’s microphone is key for those times when you just want to know that you’re truly home alone.
1. Amazon Echo
The fourth button on the Amazon Echo will turn off the microphone, and is in the 9 o’clock position.
2. Amazon Echo Dot
There are still four buttons on the top, and the mic off button is still in the 9 o’clock position.
3. Amazon Echo Plus
Turning the microphone off is the same routine as with the Echo and Echo Dot.
4. Echo Spot
Like the Echo Dot and Echo Plus, it’s a round button with a line through it, and it’s at the top in the center.
5. Echo Show
Look to the far left if the Echo Show is facing you for the button of a circle with a line through it and press it.
