The mum-of-two admitted she was feeling a bit uneasy about the photographers, who were camped outside her family house in Leicester following her victory on the ITV series at the weekend.
She told Sky News: "With regards paparazzi being outside my house, I've got two children so I hope they'd have that respect."
It follows fellow X Factor star One Direction being forced to take a court order out this week to block paps stalking him, but Sam insisted: "I don't feel famous like that. That's Harry Styles for crying out loud.
"I've just come out of a competition where I've been in a bubble so I can't see it like that yet… but I'll get advice, I'll be okay."
She continued: "With regards to the intrusion side of it, hopefully they'll have respect for me - not interfering with my private life.
"It goes hand-in-hand, you have to make these sacrifices, but I'd give autographs, I don't mind giving people the time of day."
Meanwhile, down to earth Sam laughed off the idea that she would go off the rails like last year's winner James Arthur.
"I can see why people don’t take to fame well," she said. "I don’t worry about drink and drugs. I don’t drink as a rule, I don’t like alcohol. But if someone gives me a hoover, I’ll hoover – that’s what I like doing.”
Sam added: “To be honest, there isn’t much rock and roll in my life. I like my cup of tea and I like my egg and chips.”
Sam's winner's single - a cover of Demi Lovato's Skyscraper - is out to download now, with a CD available in shops from tomorrow.
