How do I tell Siri to go away when I activate it by accident?

The best I can come up with is "Cancel", which works but replies that "there's nothing to cancel". Functional, but irritating.

Searching on Google has thus far just turned up a whole lot of stuff about how to turn Siri off altogether, which isn't what I'm after.

    Try "Goodbye" and Siri will reply "Bye!" Or something – TwentyCharMax May 23 '16 at 2:09

Other than pressing the home button or sleep button, you can say a list of words:

  • Goodbye
  • Bye
  • See you
  • So long
  • See you soon/later

You can press the home button again or say "Goodbye"


"Thank you, that's all" also works
