The world is a big and scary – and downright creepy, in some cases – place, as a family from Cleveland has recently discovered. The introduction of smart technology was supposed to make our lives easier and less stressful, but for every new tool that has been unveiled to help us, somebody is always going to be lurking in the shadows to find a way to exploit and abuse it.
Back in November of 2018, the Romano family first started to notice the little violations that would eventually culminate in a gross invasion of both their privacy and their sense of security. Every single communication device in their household has been used against them to frighten and humiliate them.
Even shutting off their wi-fi has done little to stop the harassment; their stalker has found ways to abuse them through their mobile device, going as far as sending derisive messages that call them out on their income status or playing music in response to comments they make in the privacy of their home. It’s as though someone is literally listening in on their every remark and action, and they are finding a way to intimidate the Romano family with that information.
While this is an extreme case, it sadly demonstrates that not only that this horrifying exploitation of your privacy can happen, it is happening to others right now. It’s important to take steps to protect your entire family to help prevent this from happening to you, as well. Things you can do to help keep your family safe can include:
- Install a reliable antivirus on your computer
- Only download apps from trusted websites
- Monitor your children when they use a mobile device/computer
- Don’t click on links from unknown senders
- Restrict communication to friends and family only
- Put safety controls on your computer/smart devices
