A Woman named Jess, who uses the username “@cozylifewithbless,” shared a video on TikTok of her husband’s strange encounter with Alexa in the middle of the night. Jess said that while she was out of town, her husband was playing video games at 1 am when Alexa started talking to him without being prompted. This bizarre incident led the couple to unplug Alexa and replace it with a kitchen timer.
Other users on TikTok also shared their eerie experiences with Alexa. One user claimed to have caught Alexa whispering to their dogs at 3 am, while another user reported Alexa randomly speaking about suicide prevention in the early hours of the morning.
Despite these unsettling encounters, some users vouched for Alexa’s helpfulness, with one user sharing how the digital assistant came to their mother’s aid when she fell and didn’t have her phone with her.
While voice recognition features like Voice ID are meant to personalize the Alexa experience, some users, like Jess, expressed concern over Alexa recognizing their voices when they didn’t set up this feature.
These spooky experiences with Alexa have left many users feeling unsettled, and some have taken to forums and social media to share their encounters with the digital assistant.
