Italy's data protection authority, the Garante, has issued a fact sheet on how users can preserve privacy while using smart assistants. The DPA's guide aims to help users "try to make an informed and aware use of these tools, to adequately protect our personal data and those of all people who enter, voluntarily or not, in the field of action of digital assistants." Among the suggestions to limit smart assistant data collection are turning off the device while a user sleeps, deactivating non-essential assistant features and clearing recording histories periodically.
