Go to Settings.
Scroll down, and select Siri.

Siri : unauthorized access in locked mode.
It happens that the one activates the assistant inadvertently, pressing a little more and hold the home button, because you’re holding firmly to your iPhone in hand-for example, and lo and behold.. Siri is any hearing at your voice command.
Follow these 4 little steps to make sure Siri will not trigger when your screen is locked :
Appointment in Settings.
Select Touch ID and code, this option is not available on older iPhone models.
Type your code.
(Be aware that you will be asked each time you want to access to this option.)
Scroll down and disable Siri..
Note that this operation will also automatically turn off the optional voice-activated Dialing.
