      Amazon devices will soon automatically share your Internet with neighbors. If you use Alexa, Echo, or any other Amazon device, you have only 10 days to opt out of an experiment that leaves your personal privacy and security hanging in the balance. On June 8, the merchant, Web host, and entertainment behemoth will automatically enroll the devices in Amazon Sidewalk. The new wireless mesh service will share a small slice of your Internet bandwidth with nearby neighbors who don’t have connectivity.

      Amazon’s decision to make Sidewalk an opt-out service rather than an opt-in one is also telling. The company knows the only chance of the service gaining critical mass is to turn it on by default, so that’s what it’s doing. Fortunately, turning Sidewalk off is relatively painless.

      Instructions for disabling this:

      Open the Alexa app

      Select More, then select Settings

      Select Account Settings

      Select Amazon Sidewalk

      Turn Amazon Sidewalk Off
