That’s what U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake wants to know.

Flake, an Arizona Republican, and Democratic colleague Chris Coons of Delaware sent a letter to Amazon boss Jeff Bezos this week looking for answers about the privacy features of the company’s Echo devices and Alexa software.

“Since these technologies are so new, it’s unclear how these devices work and what steps are being taken to protect consumers’ privacy,” Flake, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Privacy, Technology and the Law, said in a news release Friday.
