Apple is storing your Siri “voiceprint”

Marketplace Contributor Jun 28, 2012

You and Siri have gotten to know each other very well. She knows who you are. She always understands you. This is because you talk to Siri a lot. And all of your conversations, personal information and all, is stored on Apple’s servers! As speech recognition software becomes ever more advanced, this means these recordings could identify you, by way of your “voiceprint.”
