You might think these hooks are just for hanging your purse, but unfortunately that's not the case.

This is the kind of story we hate sharing with you, but at the same time it's so important to know this information.

Most public bathrooms have some sort of hook for your purse, coat or shopping bags, but these hooks have something more, a camera.

They're sold on Amazon for less than $13, and are marketed as surveillance cameras.

Can I just ask here... why would you ever need to use one of these somewhere?

The Daily Mail is reporting that last year, these hooks were found in three public bathrooms in Florida, and with the cheap cost and ease of purchasing, that number can increase and spread in a matter of minutes.

Think about the last time you were in a public bathroom. You probably had to pee so bad and finally caved to using the stall at the mall or at Target... so chances are you weren't paying too much attention to the hooks.

Unfortunately, next time you might want to make sure you check.
