-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.

Thank god this channel exists because I feel like I'm being recorded by someone. Also hopefully not only I'm not going to be recording but, I don't have a ex boyfriend who wants me back but I say no then records me and trys to kidnap me sevral times.
Look I know these vids are informative, but the clickbaitiness of it seems to (from what I've seen in your comment section) be contributing to a lot of unnecessary paranoia. Lots of people already have an erroneous belief that they are being watched and have anxiety about it. If someone is reading this, and this sounds like you, just remember that this is really unlikely especially in western countries, and to be calm if you ever see anything like this. They can't hurt you and the cops are on your side for this. Don't be paranoid.
By God, these are EVERYWHERE in public changing rooms, sometimes multiple ones in a single stall. I bet it's so they can get multiple angles, those sick perverts. I'm calling the police on all my local department stores!
This is nothing new, if you really want to be concerned about something, focus on your smart TV, especially when there's voice control option! Your cable provider & tv manufacturer may be evesdropping on you in order to sell your products and services! Some TV's even have a tiny camera inside the workings of the set... Hey, don't believe me, go out & research it yourselves & you'll fully understand, coat hook cameras in public bathrooms are the least of your worries, investigate some of the modern appliances in your own home, you.may be shocked at your findings!
Sometimes you hot to do it anywhere. How discusting for people watching it ripple out. Anyway avoiding it is best. Not just hooks. But anything with a hole just cover it with wet oaper till you finish.
Imagine the call "911 wuts your emergency" " I FOUND A COAT HANGER IN THE BATHROOM" " um... okay why is that a problem" " I saw a YouTube video saying that there could be cameras in it "!!!
Then he gets fined for calling with no emergency
A double hook is very common and makes total sense especially if you carry a purse and wear a jacket or coat. How about a hook that looks out of place and doesn’t match the ones already supplied as part of the general accoutrements.
Im scared of my kettle now.. i gotta tell my friends,
And i think im quit spooked because i feel like I've seen those types of hooks before many times...
I am doomed..
Before atching this vidio 😤
after watching this video👗
😮 oh no.. stalker
Guys please like because this took me 24 minutes to do this..
It was only really said once before being replaced with call the police, but never encourage calling 911 if it is not a life-threatening emergency. You should be calling your local police station (or whatever is the local one in the area you are at, if you are traveling.) instead, as it is not an emergency but it is breaking a law. Never tie up 911 for something that is not urgent, so it is free for all the people who do really need it.
This is a serious problem. I got similar informations from my very,very computer - technical skilled friend who by mistake discovered several horrible things and warned me. He got rid of computer and I covered cameras on my devices. It is serious and scary.
