The prospect of having a baby cam hacked is a horrifying one for all parties involved. As parents, we do everything in our power to keep our children safe.
When things like these happen, we end up feeling so powerless. This mother went through all of our worst fears, as she discovered that someone was hacking the baby cam and talking to her little one during the night.
Kurin Adele is sharing the story with her 335,000 TikTok followers and we are urging all of the parents out there to take a closer look.
According to her video, the Owlet baby monitors are the ones that were compromised. This caused a very terrifying situation to take place.
“I have noticed over the past couple of weeks to a couple of months, he’s been unplugging his camera,” she shared with the audience. From there, the child let his parents know why he was taking this extraordinary step. Kurin asked her husband to plug it back in for the little boy but he started to cry.
“He’s like, ‘I don’t want my camera plugged in, I don’t want my camera plugged in. Someone talks to me at night and it scares me. Someone wakes me up and talks to me and I’m scared — I don’t want my camera plugged in,'” she continued. The family was not aware of the hacker initially because the little boy assumed that his parents were the ones talking to him at first.
They decided to get online and change their password. From there, they discovered that the password has been leaked as part of a data breach. “Who the heck knows how long someone has had our password and has been messing with my son,” she said before letting the audience know, “Owlet never notified us.”
“If you are able to, get rid of your Wi-Fi cameras because there have been data breaches, data leaks, and people are hacking into baby monitors left and right, just to mess with people and it’s terrifying,” Adele advises.
Get rid of your wifi cameras!!!!! #owletcamera #babymonitorhack
