For the most part, Amazon Alexa is a family-friendly voice assistant, which means it does not use or condone the use of harsh words or profanities. However, Alexa’s goody-two-shoes virtual assistant can almost always be persuaded to use cuss words and crudities. So, using a few simple tricks, we’ll show you how to make Alexa swear today.
With Ease, Make Alexa Swear
It’s important to note that Alexa doesn’t use any profanities on purpose. However, in this post, we’ll go through some workarounds for getting the machine to act like a potty mouth. Both the Alexa mobile app and Echo devices will support the methods. So, without further ado, let’s see how you can get Amazon Alexa to utter profanities and swear words.
1. Alexa’s Announcements
Having Alexa ‘announce’ something with a curse word of some kind is probably the best way to make her swear. Of course, the most heinous profanities are always forbidden, however PG-rated profanities such as moron, ass*, dhead, and so on are permitted. To do so, simply say to Alexa, “Alexa, announce John Doe is a moron” (or something a little vulgar).
Of course, you can do it from the Alexa app by going to “Communicate -> Announce” and typing in your NSFW message. Whatever you say to the voice assistant will be read out loud. Whatever you type will be read aloud by the voice assistant and transmitted in your home. You must exercise caution while using this feature and refrain from yelling profanities in your children’s room.
2. Samuel L. Jackson’s Vocal Talent
In 2019, Amazon debuted the Samuel L. Jackson Alexa voice, which had just a few commands and answers. Since then, 30,000 new phrases have been introduced, with five times the explicit content and a custom wake term. Of course, this is a premium feature that will set you back $4.99, but it contains some of the most hilarious profanities delivered in the inimitable style of the thespian.
To begin, turn off the explicit filter (Settings -> Music -> Explicit Filter) after making your purchase. After that, expect Sam Jackson to say, “I’m not reminding you of $hit,” any time you ask Alexa to set a reminder for something. Alexa will, of course, remind you of $hit, but she will do so by using swear words.
3. Simon Suggests a Skill
Another tried and true way to get Alexa to repeat swear words is to use the ‘Simon Says’ skill. The most obscene swear words are off-limits once again, but you can get around this by substituting phonetically related words for the f-word, such as ‘faq,’ ‘fudge,’ or ‘faulk.’

4. Amazon Blueprints Custom Q&A
Alexa Skill Blueprints were introduced by Amazon a few years ago to enable users to develop their own custom Alexa responses for any question. People quickly discovered that they could use it to make Alexa say swear words, as you would imagine. They may now use similar-sounding terms to make the assistant react to reasonable questions with apparently foul-mouthed tirades.
You might, for example, ask it, “Alexa, do you think I’m funny?” “I don’t fooking think so,” it will reply. Isn’t that something priceless?
Make Alexa swear on your Alexa device, whether it’s an Echo, an Android, or an iOS device.
Alexa, Amazon’s virtual assistant, has thousands of abilities, including the ability to monitor any smart IoT computer, set timers, get weather alerts, make lists, read the news, and more. Although it’s usually a very prim and proper family-friendly assistant, you can use our guide to transform it into a foul-mouthed degenerate. So go ahead and experiment with these approaches, and let us know which ones worked best for you.
