Airlines Admit to Having Tiny Cameras in Seat Backs

The next time you fly somewhere, you might want to watch what you do when you take your seat...


Because there may be a camera in the seat in front of you!

Three of the world's biggest airlines have admitted the seat backs on their passenger planes contain hidden cameras.

Although the manufacturer claims the tiny video cameras are intended to be used for seat-to-seat video conferencing, American, United and Singapore airlines don't offer that feature to their passengers.

The cameras were first exposed last week when an eagle-eyed passenger on a Singapore flight noticed the little lens and tweeted a photo of the seat back display.

As more and more people shared the pic, a concern over the privacy of passengers began to brew.

Although all three airlines say the cameras aren't connected, one Internet user advises passengers to find the camera and place a sticker over it.
