Alexagate Amazon Alexa Blocker

You may love Alexa, but not the “always recording” feature that you can look up in your Alexa app. The new Alexagate Amazon Blocker interferes with Alexa’s “always recording” function so you can feel at ease in your home.

The white noise cap fits most Amazon Echo models to ensure that your casual conversations stay private and Alexa only hears what you want her to. Alexagate uses pulsed ultrasound to jam the Echo’s microphone. What’s even better: Ultrasound is beyond the range of adult human hearing, so you won’t even be able to tell it’s happening!

To use your Alexa, clap three times or tap the Alexagate three times to toggle off so that you can talk to your Echo like normal. Repeat to toggle your Alexagate back on to ensure privacy.
