Apple contractors working on Siri ‘regularly’ hear recordings of sex, drug deals, and private medical information, a new report says

  • Apple contractors in charge of quality control for Siri, the company’s voice assistant, “regularly” hear private and confidential information, according to a new report.
  • According to The Guardian’s Alex Hern, Apple’s contractors “regularly hear confidential medical information, drug deals, and recordings of couples having sex.”
  • Apple says its contractors hear “a small proportion of Siri recordings” to grade the assistant’s responses – even if Siri’s activation is accidental.

All of the major voice assistants – including Apple’s Siri, Amazon’s Alexa, and Google’s Assistant – are not as private as you might think.
