You have sort of created your own mess by sharing an account vs. paying for your own.
My best advice is to start fresh with your own account. Yes your data may be lost but that data belongs to the original account owner.

I believe you can disconnect the accounts as mentioned above. You can also deregister the device from your account (or your husband"s or son's). You can also separate your accounts as being shared Prime accounts but each of you would have to pay the annual Prime fee instead of you both being on the same account.


Hallelujah....Not unlike the "Smart TV" thread where big brother is watching and recording everything you do LOL. It might make sense to read the documentation when buying things and learn how to change default settings, usually found under the privacy tab. I have never seen anything be it a smart TV, a voice controlled anything, a PC, Smartphone, Google, or anything else, where one could not disable/restrict such options etc. You just have to be smarter than the device and take the time to research it out. Most do not make it easy, but those settings are there.

"Most do not make it easy, but those settings are there."

Now whether they actually do what you want them to do is another question entirely.

I'd also worry about these, as they scan your brainpan when you drive under for financial and other personal information using the Bernoulli effect of photosynthesized antimatter.

If the Amazon folks find listening in to my household interesting they lives are truly sad.

Not at all afraid of technology but concerned about people listening that shouldn't be.

I don't even have Amazon Prime. Cannot see paying a fee for expedited shipping. If I want / need something now, I go to a brick and mortar store and buy it.

People need to start being more patient and waiting for a product to arrive. Not one of those need it now people, I plan ahead.

Alexa?

Alexa?

ALEXA!

Here's a do-it-yourself project where a guy has taken a small refrigerator and equipped it for automatic beer tossing. Constructed for "several hundred dollars," John Cornwell's Beer-Launching Fridge consists of three limit switches, a 10-beer-holding magazine that looks like it came out of a soft drink machine along with a few other assorted parts, and it's all controlled by a keyless entry system.

The result? It'll toss a beer to you 13 feet away, and it's perfectly accurate every time. Even though that beer might have developed quite a head on it by the time it reaches your hands, it's still one clever piece of machinery. Bravo.



What? It even sends an emergency signal to your cardiologist if you don't move for three days?

Amazon Prime is not just about faster shipping. Prime more than pays for itself with free shipping alone.It doesn't take long to get your money back from shipping costs alone. Add in all the other prime features such as steaming TV, books, music etc., Prime is a bargain.
Of course if you like to pay more to get less, Prime is not for you.
