Warning: Mum finds spyware in her son's iPad charger
"I feel violated and disgusted"
Editor / December 08 2019
Mum Natasha has shared her shock and outrage at discovering spyware in her son's iPad charger.
After months of sharing her son's charger she noticed the similarities to a 'Nanny cam' whilst reading an article online.
"That looks like the one we use", she writes.

"This is a very urgent warning to anyone going through a custody battle. Or any person in general.
"This normal looking charging block has gone in between me and my son's father's house for months now with my son's iPad that he watches movies on.
"Today I was reading an article on nanny cams and how helpful they can be. I began to do a fair bit of research on them. That's when I came across one that was disguised as a usb wall charger. I thought to myself 'wow, that looks alot like the one that we use'".
Natasha followed her instincts and had a closer look at the iPad charger her son uses.
She is no longer with her son's father who she shares custody with. Her son uses the same iPad charger when at home with Natasha and at his fathers house.
Natasha writes the the charger looks like a standard model and "appears normal" but she found it had a false covering.
Behind the cover she found a tiny camera.
"To say I feel violated and disgusted would be a huge understatement.
"Think of all the places you use your charging block, when it is in the wall while you're changing, when you're showering, when you're driving. All the time.
"I am not afraid of him seeing how I treat my son, as he is very well taken care of. What I am upset about is the fact that I have been watched for months without knowing. I feel extremely violated. I could honestly puke."
Her former partner had been gloating for months, taunting Natasha, saying: "I know more than you think I do".
She put it down to gossip and never dreamed that her ex-partner was spying on her.
"The police will be contacted, this will be dealt with and I will be sure to keep everyone updated," Natasha adds.
