Problems With Spying Using Alexa – If you intend to use Alexa to spy on someone, you should know that Alexa is not a spying device. So, there are some drawbacks to using it as a spy device:
- The recipient’s device will start flashing green lights and ring whenever you try to drop in.
- They must be close to their Echo device for you to see or hear them.
- To do drop-ins to an Alexa device, you first have to get authorized by the target user.
- You won’t be able to drop in if someone’s device is set to the do not disturb mode.
Alexa also does two-way communication. So if you manage to drop into an Alexa device, then the target phone user will also be able to listen to you and see you on their Alexa Show screen (unless you mute your microphone and close your camera).
