Privacy is still a major issue for users of voice control, according to “The Case for Voice Control”, a study from Hub that revealed concerns about privacy and security are a significant roadblock to both wider use of voice control for sensitive topics and ownership of smart speakers. Among those who don’t yet have a smart speaker and don’t intend to buy one, two thirds (66%) say that privacy concerns are an important reason for not buying; among existing users, 59% of those who regularly use voice control have concerns about privacy. Almost all users of voice control with privacy concerns cite worries about unwanted listening by speakers (91%) and concerns about what data is being collected about users (90%).
