If Hi, Siri is enabled on your Mac , but you would like to disable it, we will help you with that.
How to disable “Hi Siri” on Mac
- On the menu bar, select the Apple icon and then System Preferences.
- Here select the Siri section.
- Uncheck the box next to Listen “Hi, Siri” at the top of the window.
Remember that this will disable only the voice activation of the personal assistant, and the remaining methods will continue to work. This does not disable Siri completely.
Now you can say “Hi Siri” next to your Mac, and he will not react at all. You can activate the helper with a keyboard shortcut, through the menu, doc, touchbar, etc. You can even communicate with Siri using text commands and queries .
Siri voice activation officially works only on new Mac models, but you can add a similar feature to the old ones.
At any time, you can change the option to restore the previous settings. If you want to re-enable voice activation, you will need to configure it again. Fortunately, this is done pretty quickly.
You can also turn off “Hi, Siri” on the iPhone and iPad .
