After an evening out, a Texas woman found something disturbing in her purse…
A tracking device.
In a viral TikTok video that has been viewed over a million times, Sheridan Ellis explains what happened to her.
“This weekend on Saturday I went to dinner with a group of friends for this girl’s birthday. If you know me I don’t normally carry a purse, but on Saturday I did because we had decorations and stuff for the table.”
“At the end of the night, I’m cleaning my purse out and I find this. If you don’t know what this is, it’s a Tile. It’s basically a tracker, people put it on their keys and whatnot,” she said.
“It’s not mine, I don’t know how it got in my purse. I immediately took the battery out, don’t worry but yeah…Check your purses and stay safe out there,” Ellis added.
According to Newsweek, Ellis explained that she found the device before she got home and made sure it was not anyone’s she was having dinner with.
Additionally, she said she didn’t report the incident to the police because she didn’t want to install the device’s battery.
The device looks like a Tile, which can be used to find nearby missing items such as keys. Using the Tile app, users can find the missing item by making them ring, as long as they are in a certain range. If the item is not in range, the Tile app can show the last location the item was in.
Great, something new for women to worry about.
