From Beds To Cleavage, Remember That The Camera Never Blinks

BOCA RATON, FL ( — We’re not publishing photos of what we’re receiving and seeing ourselves, but we will let your imagination do what it does: parents are apparently unaware of what the world sees when their kids are taking part in Google Meets and Zoom conferences with their teachers and classmates.

Broadcasting “live” from their bedrooms, elementary age boys and girls are showing their beds, their rooms, their clothes, and in some cases where valuables are kept. A wide angle computer lens is, in fact, a wide angle lens. In a bedroom, it’s easy to see everything. Live video conferences from kitchens are revealing cash, coin containers, and things that other people may want.

We encourage parents to double check the camera view of the computers their kids are using…make sure Google Meet or Zoom is not just closed but “x’ed out” as kids now say — to ensure there’s no unexpected broadcasting.

And to the Moms out there: you may want to consider where the camera is as you lean up against the lens… boys and girls at home are sometimes seeing parts of you that you may not want them to see so closely.
