Can other people using my Portal see and access my voice interactions and settings?

This article applies to:Portal TV, Portal (Gen 1), Portal, Portal Mini, Portal+

Portal can be shared among multiple owners. If your Portal is shared, then all "Hey Portal" voice interactions and settings for that device will be accessible to you and the other owners. This means that other owners with whom you share your Portal will be able to see, hear and delete your voice interactions. Those people will also be able to turn off storage of “Hey Portal” voice interactions. If an owner is removed from your Portal, that person will no longer be able to perform these actions. Learn more about how Portal works as a shared device.

Currently, “Hey Portal” is only available in English (US/Canada), and will be disabled if you select any language other than English (US/Canada) as your preferred language on your Portal. Learn more about “Hey Portal” availability.

Due to a higher than normal volume of contacts, our support options may be limited. We appreciate your patience during this time.
