Voice commerce is a growing technology where voice is used for purchasing something online. This technology works best with voice assistants and is therefore, prevalent in smart speakers.

Voice assistants store the crucial information like shipping address and payment details, in order to provide a convenient and fast method for shopping. The authentication is done by voice recognition to grant permission for carrying out the purchase. This voice recognition system has to be accurate to prevent any accidental or unauthorised purchase.

Speech and voice recognition systems are developed to understand the underlying technology of voice recognition. A structured test was conducted on Amazon’s Alexa powered echo device to find any flaws in the authentication process. This research will prove to be a foundation for a secure voice commerce via smart speakers by providing a better understanding of the authentication process as well as testing the voice recognition system implemented by Alexa.
