Have you never given out card details on the 'phone?


Now you mention it, few weeks back I did, was right next to my Alexa too...

Thing is, I don't for a minute think Amazon have that audio stored anywhere on their servers. And even if they did record every bit of audio from every customer (very unlikely), what are the odds of someone with criminal intent would have access? and even then happening to pick out those 10 seconds of audio out of the whole data set for every consumer? It's just not going to happen. And if it somehow did (it won't), it's highly unlikely my bank will allow the purchase using my card details to happen.

It's more likely that my phone would be tapped and someone would get my card details that way... so what should I do, stop using my phone?

Why do you care if people you have never met, and likely never will, hear a private conversation?
