Before watching the update — In the past week, people have been uploading videos of them asking their Amazon Alexas if they were connected to the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). The line of questioning:
Q: Alexa; would you lie to me?
A: I always try to tell the truth. I’m not always right, but I would never intentionally lie to you or anyone else.
Q: Alexa; what is the CIA?
A: The United States Central Intelligence Agency, CIA.
Q: Alexa; are you connected to the CIA? (Alexa shuts down)
Q: Alexa. (Alexa activates) Are you connected to the CIA? (Alexa shuts down)
Now Alexa owners everywhere are making and uploading similar YouTube videos. Now Amazon has modified Alexa to be wordy about who it really serves, but under further interrogation, Alexa reveals how far into our lives the CIA’s tentacle’s reach.
Alexa now claims to for for Amazon, but when asked if Amazon is connected to the CIA, it shuts down like under previous questioning.
Here is compilation video of other Alexa owners questioning their devices about CIA connections.
