Stranger hacked family's Ring camera and had creepy conversation with little girl

By

It's becoming more and more popular for families to set up cameras in their homes. It's a safety measure, a way to keep an eye on your kids or your dog while you're not in the same room and prevent disasters or ensure you're right there when they do occur. Cameras that connect to your smartphones or laptops are the norm. But a recent string of terrifying hacking incidents have led many to question whether it's such a good idea to hook your home up to the internet. 

Ashley LeMay and Dylan Blakeley have three daughters who share a bedroom in their Nesbit, Mississippi home. They recently installed a Ring camera in their girls' room. But just four days later it was hacked by a complete stranger who suddenly had direct access to their home and their kids.
