I found creepy 'spy cameras' all over Airbnb apartment with one in the shower and one over the bed – I was horrified | The Sun

A WOMAN says she was "creeped out" to find spy cameras all over an Airbnb apartment – including ones aimed at the shower and the bed.

TikTok user @foxytaughtyou says she found the devices after she and her friend had already stripped naked to get changed.



Horrifying pictures show what looks like a painted cup with a hole cut out of it on the ceiling above the sofa.

And tiny gadgets resembling miniature surveillance cameras are mounted high up on the wall in the bedroom and bathroom.

She also posted photos of sprinkler heads she suspected contained hidden camera lenses at the apartment in Philadelphia.

Airbnb said police had visited and confirmed there are no cameras in the sprinklers.

But the company also suspended the apartment host and removed the listing while it investigated the report.

Foxy shared a video of what she found which went viral earlier this week.

She said she and her best friend had not noticed any cameras when they checked in and changed their clothes to go out for the evening.

They later fell asleep on the sofa, and when they woke they spotted something strange sticking through a hole in the ceiling.

The cone-shaped object appears covered in flaking paint and has a circular hole in the end like a camera lens.

She said in her TikTok video: “It seems like they tried to hide it but I don’t know that just looks weird it’s just a hole in the ceiling with a camera.

“So I don’t know how anyone in the past didn’t notice this camera but we did.

“We were creeped out and we decided to look everywhere in the Airbnb, all over the ceiling, and see if there’s any more cameras."

She says they found more than ten suspected spy gadgets "all over" the apartment, including the sprinklers.

Her video tour of the apartment was filmed after they checked in, and she says she wishes she took more pictures after finding the cameras.

She adds: "I didn't realise that this would be all of my evidence. But we were so creeped out we just packed our s*** and left."

Police probe

On Twitter, she said she and her friend reported it to police on Friday.

She added: “We have no idea what footage this owner has and what he is doing with it!

“This is so UNSAFE, and scary! Thank God we noticed the cameras and got out of there!”

Airbnb said yesterday: “Our policies strictly prohibit hidden cameras and we take forceful action in the exceptionally rare circumstances where this has been reported, including assisting law enforcement to help them hold criminals accountable.

“In this case, our Safety team has suspended this Host and removed this listing from our platform while we thoroughly investigate this report.

“We are also providing support to our guest, including a full refund.”

In a follow-up media statement the company said police had investigated the property.

It said: "The lead detective who responded to the complaint … confirmed that he did not find any hidden or undisclosed cameras and that the fire sprinklers had regular sprinkler heads.

"The detective also confirmed that they plan to close this case."

Philadelphia police told The Inquirer: “The incident was investigated by our Special Victims Unit.

“The detective(s) did not find any hidden or undisclosed cameras. The fire sprinklers are sprinkler heads.”

Neither police nor Airbnb said if they found any cameras that were not hidden.

We have contacted Airbnb for clarification on whether overt cameras would be allowed.

In February we told how another woman found a camera disguised as a charger in the bathroom of an Airbnb in Austin, Texas.

And in March an Aibnb cabin owner was accused of secretly recording 2,000 videos of guests in the shower and having sex, also in Texas.
