Everybody takes for granted certain understandings about privacy. For example, public bathrooms, changing rooms and hotel rooms are assumed to be safe and private; however, the unfortunate reality is that some perverts have found a way to compromise this privacy.
With the rise of technology, everything has become smaller, more compact. However, with the good, comes the bad—in this case, one you might not even notice. Unfortunately, there are people who prey on the general population in ways most people would never expect.
Let us introduce you to the latest in dark technology: it looks like a hook and serves the same purpose in terms of functionality, but in reality, it was designed for a far more criminal purpose.
The ‘hook’ can easily be attached to a home or a public place and most people would never give it a second thought.
But there is a secret within the hook. There is a built-in tiny camera hidden inside the hook that records people in bathrooms, hotel rooms, or changing rooms.
Not an innocent hook after all!
The primary victims of the hook are women who have been recorded in the shower or while changing without their consent. This is a complete disregard and violation of their privacy.
On the bright side, since the camera-hooks are easy to install, they are also fairly easy to find. They have a hole on top that records audio and video.
The camera comes with a charger and transfer cable, and the hook is like any other found at a hardware store. They can even record wirelessly! You may find your own video or audio footage on the Internet if you were recorded. If you’re ever unsure or in doubt, simply cover the hole in any hook.
One thing is for sure: the camera-hooks are placed for recording by unsavory people. So, if you see a hook in a place where it doesn’t belong, trust your instincts.
What’s horrifying is that these hooks are accessible, inexpensive, and easy to purchase by criminals.
Maybe the designer of these hooks created them to increase security around your home. But in the hands of the wrong people, they can turn technology to prey on unsuspecting victims.
