Default Alexa problem

I have an alexa and my kid keeps ordering pizza. The problem is he is only 5 and we do not want pizza delivered everyday. Is there a way to filter certain voices on alexa?

Nope asking Siri how to filter voices on Alexa.
Could be interesting she might give you instructions which disables Alexa and says you should have chosen Siri.

BTW if you have Siri on an Apple iPhone

Ask Siri
'I see a little silhouetto of a man', and then wait a few seconds.

There's a fair few Alexa easter eggs.

You can control everything about Alexa using the app.

Why not try using the phone to order your Pizza?
