Apple claims that Siri does not eavesdrop on you. Its digital ears only activate when it hears the command ‘Hey, Siri,’ resulting in only a minimal quantity of audio being stored on the phone. Despite Apple’s claims, if you use Siri through voice commands to activate the digital assistant, it might be listening to you. And herein lies the problem for some: the idea that a machine could be listening to your every word (even though it’s only listening for specific wake words) is enough to make some people very uncomfortable. For those individuals, this blog offers an easy solution in 5 simple steps.
How to Stop Siri From Listening to You?
You are only 5 steps away from disabling Siri on your phone:
- From Settings, scroll down to find Siri & Search.
- Locate Ask Siri and toggle off the Listen for Hey Siri.
- Toggle off the Allow Siri When Locked.
- Toggle off the Press Side Button for Siri.
- Now a notification Turn Off Siri will appear. Tap on it.
This is it. You have successfully disabled Siri. However, please be mindful of the fact that you will now be unable to check the weather, send text messages, set alarms, and perform other actions through voice commands.
