An Australian dad was able to fight an intruder in his 1-year-old daughter’s room — but when he entered, nobody was there.
Now, rapper J-Milla and his partner, Poppy Radbone, are warning parents about hackers accessing baby monitors.
“Someone hacked into our baby monitor and was talking to our 1-year-old baby,” reads the text atop the couple’s TikTok, which has greater than 1.2 million views because it was posted last week.
“Guys, oh my God, our baby monitor got hacked this morning,” Radbone said within the 47-second video.
“Woke as much as someone talking to our 1-year-old on the f–king camera.”
They said the commotion happened at 6 a.m.
“We can hear our daughter just, like, grizzling in bed,” said J-Milla, who goes by Jay. “The next minute, we just hear this man f–kin’ start talking to her.
“I used to be considering some cop was in my daughter’s room, like, looking over her, you realize, and she or he was making that somebody was in the home,” he added.
Assuming the worst, Jay went to his baby’s room, able to fight.
“I f–king start s–tting myself, I rise up with my little tummy hanging out,” he explained. “I boot the … door open. I’m like, ‘I’m able to swing at this guy.’”
But nobody was there.
Radbone asked her followers if anything like this had happened to them.
“It’s really scary,” she noted. “We don’t know what to do yet. We’ve got a VTech” baby monitor.
For his part, Jay told parents to “watch out on the market because [people] are hacking into these items and watching.”
The Post reached out to the pair and VTech for comment.
Commenters on the parents’ video said the Wi-Fi feature could also be accountable for the invasion of privacy.
“This is such a standard issue with wifi baby monitors. Get a baby monitor that doesn’t need wifi,” someone advised.
“Yes happened to me too. someone was watching it after I was within the room!” one other exclaimed.
“It can occur through your baby toys as well. in the event that they hook up with wifi or have Bluetooth anyone can talk over with your baby unfortunately,” a 3rd warned.
This isn’t the primary baby monitor hacking allegation.
Earlier this 12 months, a mom who boasts greater than 409,000 followers on TikTok claimed that her family’s Owlet baby monitors were compromised and that a stranger talked to her son.
In 2019, a Seattle, Washington, family insisted that a stranger was watching and communicating with their daughter through what they believed was a “hacked” baby monitor.
The couple told KING 5 News on the time that they were on the lower level of their home after they heard their 3-year-old daughter calling from her room.
“She said the ‘voice is talking to me,’” the mom explained. “I said, ‘The voice is talking to you, what’s occurring?’ And she said the person said, ‘Jayden, I like you.’ And I said, ‘What?’”
The parents claimed the voice got here from their Taococo Video Baby Monitor — and have since unplugged the camera.
