TikToker shares important safety tip about moving into a new home

Cathy Pedrayes likes to describe herself as “TikTok’s Mom Friend” and shares all sorts of safety videos on her account. Pedrayes’s advice is practical — like in one TikTok where she warns people about having their house keys featured in photos. “What not to post when you move into a new house,” Pedrayes writes at the beginning of the TikTok. “You’ve probably seen pictures of someone [who] bought a house and is holding their new key”. It’s all fun and games celebrating your new home — until someone makes a copy of your key. “There are computer programs that allow you to recreate the key,” she explains. “So treat your keys like any private info and don’t post it”. “Wow that’s freaking creepy there is literally an app for everything,” someone commented. If you absolutely have to post a photo with a key, Pedrayes recommends just buying a fake key from a hardware store
