Furbo’s are supposed to be fun cameras that give dogs treats when their owner chooses, but now St. Charles woman had a creepy experience with hers.

Angela Cuniberti said, “When I was walking, I heard a man’s voice say ‘hey beautiful.’ I basically freaked out. I thought someone came into my house. My dogs started barking like crazy.”

She added, “I see this little red light, and I said, ‘that’s weird it shouldn’t be on or anything at all’ I went to take a closer look, and that’s when he started laughing.”

According to the company, the hacker most likely accessed her wifi.

Angela says she hasn’t used the device since.
