How Peeping Drones Could Be Spying On You Without You Knowing It | TODAY


  1. Lindsay Heyes on May 24, 2022 at 6:52 pm

    I looked outside my window when I heard a droning noise and it was a journalist going on and on about voyeurs with a whole camera crew and an Arri camera crane and his director was looking at a monitor and everything!

    If you get paid for this clickbait scaremongering tabloid gutter press drivel, you are conning your employer out of their money. You should be ashamed of yourself. I’m a bit late… have you still got a job in journalism?

  2. WANX on May 24, 2022 at 6:53 pm

    My neighbor spy my window I called 911

  3. NefFy on May 24, 2022 at 6:55 pm

    Get a nerf gun and shoot it down. Now it’s your drone

  4. fukc u dave on May 24, 2022 at 6:58 pm

    Who takes a bath with the blinds/curtains opened in a residential neighborhood

  5. 40rdmag on May 24, 2022 at 7:02 pm

    You should be reporting how the government is using drones to illegally stalk people.

  6. Vanessa Richardson on May 24, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    I want a black hoodie and a drone.

  7. Oliwier Kluczyński on May 24, 2022 at 7:04 pm

    Thanks for the info, I’ll use it well. To think that they won’t notice if I play mover sounds from my speaker while watching them from above, enormous

  8. G R on May 24, 2022 at 7:04 pm

    Happened to me last summer! CREEPS

  9. Christopher Sturgeon on May 24, 2022 at 7:05 pm

    Here on west virginia ive been experiencen this same thing do I stop it ..its invading privacy an privacy ofy home

  10. Arnel Jamilon on May 24, 2022 at 7:05 pm

    i saw the drone at the sky

  11. David Janke on May 24, 2022 at 7:06 pm

    Ok so the drones are not that quiet! All this does is scare people that everyone with a drone is a peeping tom. The drone you are flying a $1500 to steal maybe the same amount. Also your telling me the neighbors or people waking by wouldn’t hear or see this drone? This video is a joke. You just ruin the hobby for drone pilots placing more and more restriction on us.

  12. Jacklyn Hernandez on May 24, 2022 at 7:06 pm

    Yes I do believe this my brother daniel says he hates me and that he going to do anything to let me know how he can do to me with anybody knowing

  13. DJmadders Vlogs on May 24, 2022 at 7:08 pm

    Bruh It has to be 249 G

  14. Lewis Santos on May 24, 2022 at 7:09 pm

    Evey day when iam out of work drones are on the top of my house….. ??????? Are they CORRUPTED

  15. EricaYE6 on May 24, 2022 at 7:11 pm

    That’s why you put curtains and blinds on your windows.

  16. Jacklyn Hernandez on May 24, 2022 at 7:11 pm

    At that also he tells me if I can feel the shocking me and could cause headaches. I’m living in threat.

  17. W trade in yba on May 24, 2022 at 7:12 pm

    3:37 those drones do not need to be registered if it is 250 grams or higher you need to register it the drone the news anchor is holding and other one dont need to be registered cause they look small and light i dont know the weight of those drone he has but i dont think those drone need to be registered

  18. Kids fun time on May 24, 2022 at 7:15 pm

    What’s up spy ninjas

  19. Noah on May 24, 2022 at 7:16 pm

    So you are doing what?

  20. First Name Last Name on May 24, 2022 at 7:21 pm

    I"m Deaf and have large round breasts, which need to be massaged with oil and dried in the sunlight. I like to keep my eyes closed as I stand nude and fully shaved in front of my balcony door. It’s so sunny I usually keep my eyes closed. It’s a curse. Sometimes my fingers get chapped from sliding over my taunt nipples. Message me for my address so that you can help protect me from drones!

  21. W.E.S. Wesley entertainment studios on May 24, 2022 at 7:22 pm

    To fly it at somebody’s windows especially 3 years ago bc thats when this was made, ud have to have hulk like signal. Or next door pointing it like a remote to a TV. This is so fake. That drone picture was so fake I laughed out loud!!!

  22. Monica Gandy on May 24, 2022 at 7:24 pm

    Most private moments 🧐🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔FAA

  23. Hans Coleman on May 24, 2022 at 7:26 pm

    The ladies at the end were absolutely correct. Draw your blinds close your shades. In this day and age where everybody has a camera in their hand just things that you guys need to learn how to do.
    And those drones are so incredibly loud specifically the one that you can clearly see in this video which is the phantom. These are ridiculously loud, if you launch a drone everybody in the neighborhood knows because everyone can hear it.

  24. DrGonzo on May 24, 2022 at 7:26 pm

    "it was pretty scary, and then I realized I had no clothes on" ahahaha

  25. itsahellofaname on May 24, 2022 at 7:27 pm

    Most drone pilots have no interest in flying the very cluttered obstacle course that a residential area is, especially at such low altitude, just to see your precious indoor life (yawwwnnnn). Nobody cares.

  26. Alex Argumedo Drone81 on May 24, 2022 at 7:28 pm

    Lot of miss information …👎👎👎👎

  27. ScreenArts Media on May 24, 2022 at 7:28 pm

    People can also use binoculars or a telephoto lens on a camera, they also could just quietly walkup look in too. Like 99 9% of the Tom’s do. If you see a drone, it kids or a professional taking real-estate video, or inspecting power polls, documenting construction, mapping, or maybe just getting some video of the town. The view from a drone is a wide angel, not like the news chopper 50k cometa that can see your pp from miles away. You would never know, ever.

  28. Kevin Brown on May 24, 2022 at 7:31 pm

    Today a drone was spying on me and my sister and then flew of

  29. Red Prince on May 24, 2022 at 7:31 pm

    hahaha thats so funny he straight up tells you how to be a creep and get away with it😂

  30. SUURMIN on May 24, 2022 at 7:34 pm

    Not all of them are bad Ú.Ù

  31. Diana Vieira on May 24, 2022 at 7:35 pm

    I use curtains

  32. Sayer303 on May 24, 2022 at 7:35 pm

    I wish but am too ugly tho so no. Jk i hate that

  33. PatienceWithAnimals on May 24, 2022 at 7:35 pm

    My creepy neigbor who is an abusive stalker, is now doing this to me too — I am so scared and don’t know what to do

  34. LittleMissCuki on May 24, 2022 at 7:36 pm

    Ive had 2 look out my window in the past…while i was sleep with my window open for some fresh air

  35. keke jefferson on May 24, 2022 at 7:36 pm

    Yeah, I actually had one near my window on the 2nd floor. It flew off after I got up out the bed.

  36. Flametionist on May 24, 2022 at 7:36 pm

    2:48 To those wondering why that ‘code’ is on the front of the drone: In order to commercially fly and/or operate a drone under .55 lbs (250 grams), you must register it with the FAA, and part of the registration process has you put a given code on an external face of the drone. Hence, the numbers and letters.

  37. Collin Hanson on May 24, 2022 at 7:37 pm

    What a stupid video… If the drone can see you, you can see the drone. They are just trying to scare old people who are clueless.

  38. Kids fun time on May 24, 2022 at 7:38 pm

    What’s up spy ninjas

  39. AY KAY on May 24, 2022 at 7:39 pm

    So upset just endured that yesterday in the day came twice to my 2nd story bedroom window,had window open but curtain down.Very frustrating due to the fact you don’t know who is operating and can’t locate them! I did call the police say can’t do anything unless I know who is operating and ffa blah! I was lucky to record the humming the 2nd time then flew away. What is most upsetting is you don’t know if it’s a creep,someone that hates you,someone that’s nosy Etc

  40. TheIceCreamMachine on May 24, 2022 at 7:39 pm

    Ever heard of curtains? Stfu

  41. mason brumbaugh on May 24, 2022 at 7:40 pm

    Why you should close your blinds when doing something you don’t want people to know about. So simple!!!

  42. Chad Gilmore on May 24, 2022 at 7:40 pm

    Propaganda against drones…sooks🥱

  43. Lewis Santos on May 24, 2022 at 7:41 pm


  44. ⊙_⊙ on May 24, 2022 at 7:43 pm

  45. Peter Alexander on May 24, 2022 at 7:46 pm

    Go search the word "vitrage" on google images, find the one wich you cannot see through easily, put that inside the house in front of the windows..

  46. Conure King! on May 24, 2022 at 7:46 pm

    So you found three cases… out of millions of drone owners.

  47. maverick 44 on May 24, 2022 at 7:47 pm

    That’s what they make shot guns for.

  48. Muller Rodriguez on May 24, 2022 at 7:50 pm

    Trusting *willcarsonhacks* on !nstagram has been one of the best decision I made this 2021, I’m really grateful to you, and I think y’all should check him out, 100% reliable!!l!

  49. Sollith on May 24, 2022 at 7:50 pm

    Pure sensationalist fear mongering. Cameras can zoom up to a 100x on phones now; don’t need to fly if they can use their smartphone to just zoom in from down the street on that hill in the park, but we’re not freaking out about phone cameras, let alone DSLRs. Let’s just ban or over regulate everything, because someone somewhere probably used it at some point to do something immoral and potentially harmful.

  50. Jack Chan on May 24, 2022 at 7:51 pm

    Just a FYI – I had a Breeze. It sucks. Get a DJI.
