New technology can be a wonderful thing. There have been so many advancements over the past couple decades that have made life easier. Smartphones, self-driving vehicles and virtual assistants just to name a few.
However, in the wrong hands, some high-tech gadgets can have horrific results. One example of this is when hackers use Bluetooth toys to spy on children. You won't believe what creepers are using to invade our privacy now.
How deviants could be spying on you
What we're talking about are innocent looking clothing or coat hooks. However, if you take a closer look, you'll see there is a tiny hidden camera built-in that peepers are using to watch people undress. Here's an example of what one of these "spy hooks" looks like:
These sneaky cameras are available for purchase online for as little as $20 and typically have a two-hour battery life. They are being marketed as a home-security item.
However, peeping Toms are using them for more devious purposes. Police are warning people to keep an eye out for them mounted in places like dressing rooms, hotel rooms and public restrooms.
If you find one of these spy cameras do NOT touch it. You need to immediately call the police and they will investigate and try to find the person who planted it there.
Several of these spy hooks were discovered recently in places across Florida. Watch the following video for a full report.
It's horrifying to think about falling victim to one of these spy hooks. Make sure you're checking your surroundings before undressing in one of the potentially targeted locations. Better to be safe than sorry.
