Apple allegedly releasing Siri recordings to third parties
If your worth your salt you’ve know since 2013 that commands muttered through Siri have been stored in an Apple data center somewhere.While that is still the case information released recently suggests that this information is being used not just by Apple but by select third parties as well.
A Reddit user FallenMyst, recently spoke about Walk N’ Talk Technologies, a company that requires her to listen to voice data collected from Apple and Microsoft users and check for incorrect interpretations. She claimed:
“I get to listen to sound bites and rate how the text matches up with what is said in an audio clip and give feedback on what should be improved.” Fallenmyst wrote. “Guys, I’m telling you, if you’ve said it to your phone, it’s been recorded…and there’s a damn good chance a 3rd party is going to hear it,“
Apples’ iOS Software License Agreement states that:
“By using Siri or Dictation, you agree and consent to Apple’s and its subsidiaries’ and agents’ transmission, collection, maintenance, processing, and use of this information, including your voice input and User Data, to provide and improve Siri, Dictation, and dictation functionality in other Apple products and services.“
