A family got the fright of their life after they discovered a hidden camera in their airbnb property.
So the family were staying in a rented place in brampton canada when they discovered the hidden recording device in an area where someone was sleeping.
Jas gruel who was staying In the airbnb, with his three cousins told city news, we don’t know what happened with the footage. We don’t know what they heard. We don’t know if they recorded anything. We just don’t know. It came to my cousin’s attention.
We were trying to plug our laptop into the tv and we were looking for an hdmi cable and when he went to look for the hdmi cable he saw there was a cabinet with a little hole, a peephole and when he looked closer, the cabinet was locked. So you couldn’t actually access the cabinet. There was like a camera behind it. That was locked. That’S when we figured out that there was a hidden camera in our living space.
The mattress was right in front of it. It’S pretty terrifying. Once more gruel said, his female cousin had been sleeping on that same mattress during their stay also when they messaged the airbnb host to ask for more time to get sorted and leave the property. They responded, hello, jay. You definitely need more time.
If that doesn’t make, you feel like you’re, being watched, nothing will on the airbnb website. It reads: security measures like security cameras and noise monitoring devices are allowed as long as they are clearly disclosed in the listing description and don’t infringe on another person’s privacy rules about devices applied to all cameras, recording devices, smart devices and monitoring devices.
However, gruel says they knew nothing about any devices. If somebody had told us, hey, listen, there’s a camera here. If it’s well visible or if somebody had told us it’s there, it’s a whole different story.
He said in a statement airbnb told city news: airbnb has a clear policy when it comes to the use of security, cameras and homes that must be adhered to by all hosts. We take guest privacy seriously and our dedicated safety team is thoroughly investigating. A full refund. Has been given to the guests and the listing has been deactivated pending the investigation. Gruel concluded it’s not about the money.
At this point we don’t know what kind of footage pictures audio might be sitting with somebody. We don’t even know yeah. That’s definitely not a good feeling now he says that was he used to use airbnb all the time. He’ll start staying hotels because he believes they are safer.
