-When entering a public bathroom, always look around and pay attention to any coat hooks you see. Hidden inside these hooks are tiny discrete cameras capable of capturing not only still pictures but recorded footage as well.
-Amazon and eBay offer such cameras to anyone willing to pay, and they cost less than 10 bucks.
-Since these tiny spy cameras are wireless, they can be recorded remotely. This means that somebody has a remote control which is also wireless and works through walls.
-Some clear signs a hook is a spying device are: it’s a double hook attached to the wall where it’s of no use, and you notice some blinking light on it.
-Coat-hook cameras are supposed to be for home security.
-Since 2016, there have been several cases in Florida of these tiny cameras being discovered in public bathrooms and rest areas. A 2015 case in England made headlines when a young woman spotted a hidden camera recording her while she was taking a shower in her hotel.
-A survey conducted by the Which? Group found that eight of the fifteen devices you use on a regular basis including TVs, baby monitors and even toys can be hacked.
-Always change default passwords and log-ins to devices that are connected to the Internet. Use sticky tape to cover microphones and cameras on these gadgets so that cyber-criminals can’t see what you’re doing and eavesdrop on your personal life.
