Scammers, scammers everywhere…

We hear horror stories all the time about peoples’ personal info getting hacked from any number of institutions, but a TikTokker named Mark has a different kind of warning for folks out there.

And it’s something we should all be paying attention to because it can happen to anyone doing some online browsing on a smartphone or a laptop.

He started his video by saying, “Why did no one tell me that you can access somebody’s internet search history through the Wi-Fi ?”

Mark said he was playing video games with friends when one person in the group kept randomly mentioning things that Mark had been Googling in recent days.

The man talked about a movie Mark recently saw and a town in France that Mark wanted to visit.

The man kept bringing up topics and he even brought up Mark’s car out of nowhere.

He said, “For some reason, the first thought in the brain was that this guy was magic.”

But there was a catch…the man learned all this about him because Mark had logged into the man’s WiFi.

The man was pranking him and his roommate told Mark, “He can’t read minds. It’s just a weird bit he does. He can check your search history through the Wi-Fi network.”

Mark said that he looked at his phone and noticed that several tabs were open and they were about the topics the man had been talking about.

That’s kinda creepy…
