iPhone can end up recording your conversation while using the Messages App on iPhone. You can find below the steps to Prevent Voice Recording on iPhone While Texting.
Prevent Voice Recording While Texting on iPhone
When you are Typing or Texting on iPhone using the Messages App, iPhone automatically starts recroding your voice and of those around you, when you lift your device and hold it near the ear.
When iPhone is pulled away from the ear and brought down, it stops recording and provides the option to send the Recorded Audio Message.
However, the recording feature in Messages App is also known to be triggered, if iPhone is tucked into the Arm or is being carried at shoulder level.
If this bothers you, go to Settings > Messages > scroll all the way down to “Audio Messages” section and disable Raise to Listen option.
After this, iPhone won’t be able to automatically switch to recording mode, when it is lifted up, carried at shoulder level or brought near the ear.
The good news is that, disabling Raise to Listen does not prevent you from recording and sending Audio Messages. You can still send Audio Messages by using the Sound Wave Icon that appears in the text box.
After disabling “Raise to Listen” you won’t be able to listen to incoming audio messages by raising iPhone. However, you will be able to manually play Audio Messages and listen to them.
Disable Dictation Mode
As you must have noticed, there is a dedicated Microphone key on the virtual keyboard of iPhone. Any accidental tap on this key can end up activating Dictation Mode, which allows iPhone to record your voice.
If you are not likely to use Dictation Mode, go to Settings > General > Keyboard > scroll down and move the toggle next to Enable Dictation to OFF position.
On the confirmation pop-up, select Turn Off Dictation option.
This will remove the Microphone Icon from the keyboard, which totally prevents the possibility of your voice being recorded while using the keyboard on your iPhone.
