Alexa, Siri, Cortana – Are you Recording Me?

By Robert G. Stahl Esq., NJ & NY Criminal Defense Lawyer posted in Criminal Defense, Privacy, Spying, cellphone, Recording, Search and Seizure, Cell tower, Fourth Amendment on Wednesday, October 18, 2017

With the advent of “smart homes and devices,” we are now in a world once only imagined in science fiction. Our phones now track our every move, contain our internet search histories and record vast portions of our lives through photos, texts, and encrypted messages.  Home security devices and cameras record not only strangers coming to your home, but also you and your invited guests.  Baby monitors, smart kitchen devices like refrigerators, and home devices like Amazon’s Echo, are always on and potentially recording or transmitting.  And therein lies the problem. 

Anything attached to the internet – the Internet of Things – can be hacked, intercepted or legitimately recorded.  Since these devices are in the privacy of our own homes or businesses, they have the ability to capture our most intimate and private conversations and actions.
