Hello all, I bought a Sonos One for our spa house so we don't have to use wet hands to operate phones etc.

Within 10 minutes or less of using it in the house it had already tried signing me up for Amazon Music at £10 a month!.

After getting Deezer working I turned it off and it's now sat back in its box as I don't trust it with the kids (or me!) buying stuff by accident.

Only way forward I can think of is making a spoof account with no card registered, would be a pain though.

Any other options?.

Managed to turn it off John B. Been using the One in the kitchen and it's a great but of kit!.

Just one more question, how do I phrase it so Alex plays the ALBUM "No Tourists" by the Prodigy and not just the song "No Tourists"?.

Alexa, play the album 'No Tourists' by 'The Prodigy' ... should do it.
You might even get sway with just 'Play the album 'No Tourists''.

"Play album No Tourists" did the trick!.
