    New York City’s Department of Consumer Affairs is warning parents to secure Internet-connected video baby monitors, NBC News reported.

    Officials say there have been many reports of devices being infiltrated and, in some cases, strangers talking to babies in the middle of the night through hacked monitors.

    The department is urging parents to buy secure devices, use strong passwords, register their products and turn the devices off when not in use.
