Technology can give us amazing things, like self-driving cars and a fully automated kitchen. Unfortunately, in the wrong hands, advanced technology can become very dangerous. Just turn on the news and you'll see plenty of examples of technology being used for nefarious purposes. That's why it's more important than ever to be aware of potential danger so you don't unwittingly become a victim of a serious crime or financial scam.
Recently, a woman fell victim to an extreme violation of privacy due to a hidden piece of technology, and she wants to make sure it never happens to anyone else. The woman worked as an engineer on an oil rig, and in her dorm room she noticed what looked like a hook attached to her wall. But, on closer inspection, she realized it was actually a hidden camera that was recording her every move. Needless to say, she was horrified. In an interview with CNN, she said, "Every day, the anxiety and fear of waking up and thinking that this footage could be online is a haunting thing."
The video below shows just how these devices work and how seemingly innocent they look. It's very important to be aware of your surroundings when you're in a new place such as a hotel room or a dorm. If you see something that looks suspicious, do not hesitate to call the police. These crimes are incredibly serious and unless we all stand up to it, they will become more and more prevalent.
