How can I disable my parent’s security cameras?

My mom caught me having friends over when she wasn’t home, and the next day, 7 Arlo home security cameras were installed inside and outside my home. I feel violated of my personal privacy, and overall... I hate it. They are wireless, so id assume they’re connected via WiFi, but the room with the router is locked out of my access. Any help is appreciated.

    I think you are better off not having your friends over.

    I don't know. You should call the cops and ask them.

    And when your parents figure it what, what will they do to you then?

      Take pictures of the cameras and document everything. Be silent. Watch everything and say nothing.

    John, out of curiosity, I looked up your questions, and it happens that you tortured a dog, which causes me to think that you may be emotionally disturbed.

    With that in mind, she may not trust you and needs to monitor you for YOUR OWN protection.  

    You do NOT own the house, and your mother has the right to monitor it.

    That is a complete invasion of privacy. Log into the router.

    Open a web browser and type in http://192.168.1.1. If this doesn't load your router page, look up your service provider.

    Comcast: http://10.0.0.1/ or http://192.168.100.1/

    AT&T: http://192.168.1.254/

    Or, just Google your ISP's router page IP. They are usually all the same.

    Once you're at the router page, remove all the cameras from the network and enable MAC Address Filtering. Either block all devices except for non-cameras, or specifically block the cameras (less secure).

    If you are unable to make changes due to an Access Code being required, you may need to get access to the router. The Access Code will be on the back.

    If they don't respect your privacy as a child, get into the cybersecurity field ASAP. If they don't respect you now, you have no reason to respect them when you become an adult. Saying they will regret this would be an understatement.

    Consider getting serious about your own privacy. Encrypt all your devices, change all your passwords and make them all different, and safeguard everything. Outsmart your parents; not the other way around.

    Last piece of advice: Don't show them this question you asked here or let them know you are researching this stuff. An old quote adopted by hackers: "The quieter you become, the more you can hear."

      This is the most helpful answer and most respectful to the question asker. It's important to have your privacy respected. I 100% agree with the part: "Saying they will regret this would be an understatement."

      The problem arises when parents don't even respect their children. If it becomes a problem, feel free to call CPS (Child Protective Services).

    Use a broom and smack em, but the camera would have already notified your parents.

    Some WiFi providers have an app. If you can somehow log into the app, you can cut the WiFi to the cameras. Also, WiFi allows them to work, but the also need power, so you could just remove the battery or unplug them. If that doesn’t work, take some shaving cream and squirt the lenses with it. That will kill the visual. As for audio, just fùck your friend quietly. 👍🏼

      In fact, I would suggest to all the kids out there, take acting classes and understand human psychology. If your parents are rogue, you have no reason to respect them when you become an adult.
