According to the reports, some companies also said that the random voice data was not being stored, which it turns out, was being stored. Facebook, as well as Apple, were caught doing it in the past. And now Microsoft has come forward according to the reports, which allows third parties to listen in on some of your voice data.

This entire situation comes into light because of a query, which was made in Cortana, which is Microsoft’s own Artificial Intelligence. Actually, Cortana is a part of every computer that currently runs the Windows 10, which says that unless it has been specifically switched off, the Artificial Intelligence of the device or system can always listen to your commands.

According to the reports, Microsoft says, that in addition to the above situation the voice data can sometimes be shared with third-party contractors after it has been anonymized. According to the reports, Microsoft justified this whole situation through a statement, which was added to their Privacy Policy, which reads, “To build, train, and improve the accuracy of our automated methods of processing, which includes AI.

After this thing, we can say that Microsoft is also having third parties audit snippets of audio files, which are picked up from the Cortana queries. Amazon was also caught doing the same thing but they also denied and said they don not even store audio recordings.
