    I mean I don't see it happening lol. But the OP mentioned government hacking stories.
    If you've got stuff to hide, then worry. If they can't get in through your iPhone, they'll find another way if they really want to.

    To me the only reason to disable it would be for battery implications but I find it useful when I need it so I leave it on.

    How do you guys get Hey Siri to recognise your voice? I've tried a few times but once I finally get through the setup it never responds to my voice

    Make sure Allow "Hey Siri" is enabled in Settings > Siri.

    Plug it into a charger and try. The only devices that support Hey Siri without being plugged in are iPhone 6s/6s Plus and newer and iPad Pro 9.7".

    I have it enabled on my 7 plus but it takes ages for it to recognise my voice going through the setup and then once it is setup it hardly works if not at all

    Hmmm...I'd say try the setup again and make sure that you're in a super quiet area when you do it. Mine works pretty flawlessly.

    Use your normal voice, don't force yourself to speak any different than you normally do.

    I did mine a few different ways when I trained it, which seems to work. Still speaking normally, but just an emphasis on different parts of the phrase.

    Good luck

    LOL this makes me think of the time I tried to get my wife to train Siri on her phone. She decided to use a voice that I have NEVER heard come from her in our 15 years together. Funniest thing ever.

    Does anyone know if it negatively impacts battery life? I just turned it on for the first time.

    It's not documented anywhere but if I had to guess you would at most lose like 15 minutes of usage time while Hey Siri is enabled. Disabling it will only give you 15 more minutes if usage time.

    I've used it once or twice just playing around with it & haven't used it since. I would turn it off, but then I think what if one day I need it. So I keep it on because you just never know. Lol

    I do, but some things don't seem to work well through "Hey Siri" versus just activating Siri normally.

    Example: "Hey Siri, I need lunch reservations"
    "I'm afraid I can't book a table right now" then pulls up a list of restaurants to call...

    But if I just activate Siri normally and ask the same question, Siri pulls up a list a restaurants near me that have available tables near the current time, and will link my selection to OpenTable to make my reservation.
