Of course the vibrator with a camera is terrifyingly easy to hack

Do you want the entire world to get a very up close and personal view of your cervix? Then you might want to throw that IoT sex toy away.

Security experts have figured it is woefully easy to hack your way into Svakom’s Siime Eye, an internet-connected vibrator. The device features a small camera at the tip, which can allow you to share your pleasure online. All well and good if youre sure only those with your permission can see it, but thats decidedly not the case.

As Vice reported, security consultant at Pen Test Partners figured out that if youre within the dildos wifi range and you can figure out the password you can see the video stream. Thats particularly easy because the default password for the device is 88888888.

So basically any stranger with a little know-how can get access to your most intimate moments, and youd have no way of realizing it. Whats worse, anyone with slightly more advanced hacking skills could take it a step further and seize control of the dildos operation a truly terrifying experience for the unsuspecting user.

This is clearly not the first sex toy hack vibrator company WeVibe recently settled a huge privacy violation lawsuit after it collected sensitive personal data without telling users. Experts have long warned that most Internet of Things devices are vulnerable. But this is by far the most intimate intrusion weve seen in the sex toy space.

Youd hope that a company who created a product for such intimate moments would prioritize the privacy of its users. Alas, Pen Test Partners sent them several emails over the course of several months and received no response.

Clearly now’s not the time to drop $250 on one of these dodgy dildos, but if you already own one, your best bet is to throw it right in the trash.
