Cameras are everywhere these days – at traffic lights, in store ceilings, on street corners – that it’s easy to forget they’re there sometimes.
Whether it’s a phone, tablet, or computer, just about every electronic device we own comes fresh with a camera.
While it’s true that such easy access to cameras can be convenient, it can also turn into a huge invasion of privacy if your camera starts snapping away and recording videos without you even knowing it.
Kristen Hancher, an 18-year-old social media celebrity, learned this the hard way after accidentally starting an Instagram live stream.
It’s not 100-percent clear how this accident happened, but it is 100-percent clear that what ended up on the live stream wasn’t one that she meant to share.
The stream captured an intimate moment between Kristen and her boyfriend and was seen by about 14,000 people. Yikes!
