- Your Amazon Echo is helping build a Wi-Fi network for Amazon right under your nose and you don't even realize it.
- That's right, your Amazon Echo will share your Wi-Fi network with your neighbors unless you opt-out of the feature.
- The sharing is made possible because of Amazon Sidewalk a feature that according to Amazon, makes devices work better by extending low-range bandwidth to ensure the devices in your home remain online.
- For instance, if you and your neighbor have Amazon products and you both haven't opted out when your neighbor buys a Ring camera the camera can send data via your wi-fi signal.
