While Amazon's digital assistant devices, such as the Echo, offer convenient ways to help you in day-to-day life, it is creepy that is listens all the time and even stores all of your questions.  However there's a way to wipe clean all of your questions with one voice command. Say , “Alexa, delete everything I said today,” and your Echo speaker or other Alexa device will delete all voice data and stored commands on your account that have accrued that day. However you first have to set up this feature in your Alexa app’s settings, and the setting is pretty buried. Open up the app, open up the Settings section, and then tap on Alexa Account > Alexa Privacy > Review Voice History. There, Toggle on the ability to “Enable deletion by voice,” and train everyone in your home to be as diligent about saying “the phrase” as you are each day, just in case you forget. You’ll also soon be able to tell Alexa to “delete what I just said,” a feature that should go live at some point over the next few weeks in the United States. If you happen to forget to do this daily or the time between deletions feels too long, you can also manually delete data from the Alexa app settings.
