“These medication management features use multiple layers of verification to ensure that only you are able to access your prescription information via Alexa”. According to the company, “If the voice profile or personal passcode does not match with the account, the information will not be relayed. Additionally … interactions with this skill are also redacted in the Alexa app to maintain privacy”.
