Siri turned on the recording of unsolicited conversations without the knowledge of users and transferred the data to third parties.

Several users have filed a lawsuit against Apple that the voice assistant Siri recorded users’ private conversations due to “accidental activation.” This was reported by the Reuters news agency.

According to the lawsuit, Siri turned on the recording of unsolicited conversations without the knowledge of users and transferred the data to third parties. One user reported that personal conversations with a doctor about “surgical treatment” resulted in targeted advertisements for the treatment. Two other users reported that their conversations about Air Jordan sneakers, Pit Viper and Olive Garden sunglasses triggered advertisements for these products. Apple demanded to dismiss the claim, and Judge Jeffrey S. White of the federal district court in Oakland, USA, dismissed the consumer economic portion of the claim. Plaintiffs may continue to file claims that Apple violated federal wiretapping and California privacy laws, the judge said.
