Amazon's Echo device has left users shaken after it laughed at them out of the blue.

Some people have taken to social media and claimed their gadget - which is meant to giggle when the user tells it a joke, and is powered by intelligent personal assistant Alexa - has let out an "evil" chuckle at creepy times.

One Twitter user wrote: "Lying in bed about to fall asleep when Alexa on my Amazon Echo Dot lets out a very loud and creepy laugh... there's a good chance I get murdered tonight. (sic)"

Another even joked it was time to leave their home out of fear technology has truly taken over.

They tweeted: "Unprompted, my Alexa just said 'sure, I can laugh: tee hee' and I'm moving out now. (sic)"
