Baby monitors are used all over the country to keep an eye on our kids from the other room.
What most people don’t know is that these devices are easy for hackers to tap into and watch your children when nobody is looking.
When her son said that someone talked to him at night – this mom got a wakeup call.
The boys parents, Heather and Adam had no idea what he was talking about at first.
They soon came to the realization that their toddler was being spied on by a complete stranger who had hacked the monitor! Sarah walked into the room one night and also heard voices. They were saying,
“Wake up little boy, daddy’s looking for you.”
The parents immediately called the maker of this device, Foscam, who informed them it was very likely that someone had hacked their baby monitor using a smartphone or computer.
They shared their story so others can be aware.
CBS News confirmed that as more monitors come equipped with internet and smartphone connectivity, this type of crime is occurring more frequently.
Pass this on to every parent you know.
