Technology has changed the way we live. For the most part, it has made our lives easier. Spy cameras or surveillance cameras are among the technological innovations that have proven very useful for security measures.

These gadgets now come in many forms. There are models that are camouflaged to blend in with the environment. Others are made to appear as something else such as a pen, an alarm clock, or a toy. One of the more advanced models are those that are disguised as screws.

Apparently, some unscrupulous individuals have taken advantage of these spy screw cameras for their own perverse reasons. Such tiny hidden cameras can be purchased in Amazon for only $16. Authorities recently issued a warning about how these tiny cameras are being used by some criminal minds.

People with bad intentions have corrupted technology.

This is what their warning revealed: “This is a warning to everyone using public restrooms, especially women. Be careful because some perverts or people who want to blackmail you have found a way to place these these screw cameras inside restrooms. They’ll take compromising images of you and then upload it on some adult website.”

“They may also use these compromising images to blackmail you. So, please tell your wives, girlfriends, daughters, and all the women you know about this so they won’t get victimized.”

This one looks like it's part of the door frame.

Needless to say, the warning against screw cameras has gone viral. After all, other similar sleazy practices have exploited spy cameras before. The screw cameras could easily be disguised as part of the restroom stall door’s bolt and latches.

So many netizens have commented that malls and other public places should take measures to prevent these devices from violating anyone privacy. For now, though, all we can do is be more vigilant.
