A WOMAN says she “snuck out” when she found spy cameras all over an Airbnb apartment — including ones pointed at the shower and bed.
TikTok user @foxytaughtyou says she found the devices after she and her friend had already stripped naked to change.
Terrifying images show what appears to be a painted mug with a hole cut out on the ceiling above the sofa.
And in bedrooms and bathrooms, tiny gadgets resembling miniature security cameras hang high on the walls.
She also released photos of sprinkler heads which she suspected contained hidden camera lenses in the Philadelphia apartment.
Airbnb said police visited them and confirmed there were no cameras in the sprinklers.
But the company also suspended the landlord and removed the listing while it investigated the report.
Foxy shared a video of what she found that went viral earlier this week.
She said she and her best friend didn’t notice any cameras when they checked in and changed for a night out.
They later fell asleep on the sofa, and when they woke up, they discovered something strange sticking out through a hole in the ceiling.
The cone-shaped object appears to be covered in peeling paint and has a circular hole like a camera lens at the end.
She said in her TikTok video: “It seems like they tried to hide it but I don’t know it just looks weird it’s just a hole in the ceiling with a camera.
“So I don’t know why anyone in the past hasn’t noticed this camera, but we did.
“We were terrified and decided to check all over the Airbnb, all over the ceiling, and see if there were any more cameras.”
She says they found more than 10 suspected spy devices “everywhere” in the apartment, including the sprinklers.
Her video tour of the apartment was filmed after they checked in, and she says she wished she’d taken more photos after finding the cameras.
She adds: “I didn’t realize that this would be all my evidence.
She said on Twitter that she and her friend reported it to the police on Friday.
She added: “We have no idea what footage this owner has and what he’s doing with it!
“This is so UNSAFE and scary! Thank goodness we noticed the cameras and got out of there!”
Airbnb said yesterday: “Our policies strictly prohibit hidden cameras and we are taking strong action on the exceptionally rare instances where this has been reported, including assisting law enforcement agencies to help them bring criminals to justice.”
“In this case, while we thoroughly investigate this report, our security team has suspended this host and removed this entry from our platform.
“We also offer our guests assistance, including a full refund.”
In a subsequent media statement, the company said police were investigating the property.
It said: “The lead detective who responded to the complaint … confirmed that he did not find any hidden or undisclosed cameras and that the sprinkler systems had standard sprinkler heads.
“The detective has also confirmed that they plan to close this case.”
Philadelphia Police told The Inquirer: “The incident has been investigated by our Special Victims Unit.
“The detectives did not find any hidden or undisclosed cameras. The fire sprinklers are sprinkler heads.”
Neither police nor Airbnb said if they found any cameras that weren’t hidden.
We contacted Airbnb to clarify if candid cameras are allowed.
In February, we reported how another woman found a camera disguised as a charger in the bathroom of an Airbnb in Austin, Texas.
And in March, an Aibnb cabin owner was accused of secretly recording 2,000 videos of guests showering and having sex, also in Texas.
Internet sleuths say there are apps that can help you find any device connected to WiFi.
But they don’t recognize cameras that record to memory cards.
