Re: Thanks!
This is a good tip. Even when locked this mechanisms can access data within the phone. It may be beneficial for the companies that provide these virtual assistants to scale back some of their access while locked.

Re: Thanks!
I would also suggest that you turn off your Google Now / Siri and Alexa.

Disable these while at Blackhat / DefCon as it has been demonstrated that all of them are suseptable to High Frequency signals that can be used by hackers to dump your contacts list/ history and direct your device to infected websites
