Like most parents, couple Jay and Sarah from Minnesota put a baby monitor in their 3-year-old son’s bedroom. One day, in 2015, the 3-year-old said he was suddenly scared, and that someone was talking to him over the phone at night. The parents had no idea what he was talking about, but they decided to look into the baby monitor’s activity.
What Jay and Sarah discovered is absolutely terrifying. The couple went public with their story — that a stranger h-a-c-k-e-d into their baby monitor, was spying on their son, and saying disturbing things to him at night. On the monitor, Jay and Sarah heard a man’s voice saying, “Wake up little boy, Daddy’s looking for you.” When Sarah walked into the room on the monitor, Jay heard the voice say, “Look, someone’s coming.” They also noticed the monitor moved, even when they weren’t controlling it.
The couple was so frightened, so they contacted the monitor’s maker and learned it was indeed possible for a hacker to control the baby monitor with a smartphone or laptop. However, there was no way of knowing who or from where the h-a-c-k-e-r lived! And apparently, this type of c-r-i-m-e is becoming more common since newer baby monitors come with internet connection, making it easier for c-r-i-m-i-n-a-l-s to h.a.c.k into the system.
