Your voice assistant is very easily hacked.

Using frequencies you cannot hear, but heard by Siri, Cortana, Google Assistant, and Alexa (to name some), your assistants can be controlled by others.  Those taking control of your device this way can load malware, load malicious web pages, call telephone numbers, and more.

There is not, as yet, a fix for this.  But you should be aware of the problem.
