Recently, when a netizen checked into an Airbnb B&B in Qingdao, he discovered that there was a camera obscura hidden in router facing bed! It is clear that landlord installed camera in March, but so far it was around February. We do not know how many personal photos of tenants were secretly taken by camera obscura, and where did these videos go?
A young girl from Changzhou, Jiangsu Province, found a camera obscura in an outlet opposite her bed in a rented house where she had lived for almost a year. After verification, it was installed by landlord.
This camera is connected via a mobile phone application, meaning that homeowner can see entire private life of woman through mobile phone. Although landlord was detained by public security authorities for 5 days, damage done to woman was irreparable.
Some people say that I don't stay at a hotel for business or rent a house, so I won't be followed. of course not!
The so-called "world's largest web site for security cameras on Internet" lists more than 16,800 cameras worldwide. The worst thing is that everyone in world can watch your every move online through any camera, there is... a real version of The Truman Show.
Just imagine if couples' privacy is sold to porn sites, and naked videos of children are sold to obscene perverts, and criminals find your house from video, it will be creepy! Some netizens suffered from depression and even committed suicide because video they were secretly filmed in was widely shared on internet!
How can we prevent and fix monitored events? Yianfang has some suggestions for you.
Select a regular channel to buy, a branded camera, when using it change a new (non-standard) password! When you don't need it, try turning off camera.
When installing, choose a regular company or installer to avoid abuse by those who want to.
If you are planning to stay in a hotel or rent a house, carefully check room, especially equipment facing bed. If there is an infrared device in camera, or if there is an infrared fill light around surveillance area, turn on camera function on your mobile phone and walk around room, focus on checking air conditioner, lampshade, ceiling, cosmetic mirror and smoke detector, vases, sockets, TV stands, bedside lamps, vases, fragrances, murals, etc. If there is a red dot display, there is a surveillance camera.
If camera is not equipped with an infrared sensor, after registering you can turn off several lights to dim room so that camera cannot get a clear effect.
Summer is here, ladies who love to wear skirts, it's best to stand sideways when going up escalator and try to hold skirt with your hands to prevent it from being exposed. better to keep your distance from crowd at back.
It is recommended to wear safety pants if women wear skirts on bus or subway.
Go to a public restroom or bathroom and look for cameras around. Pay attention to small items such as lighters, sockets, etc. These items are easy to install with miniature cameras.
If you find that someone is buying and selling or secretly filming with a hidden camera, you should not be soft-hearted, call police in time, let them be punished properly, and let's work together to maintain social stability.
Finally, it is also recommended that relevant national departments issue appropriate laws and regulations, improve legislation, severely punish this kind of sudden shooting and behavior monitoring, and protect the legitimate rights and interests of citizens from infringement.
