I have recently been seeing posts on social media about the CellMate chastity cage and how people are hacking them and permanently locking them into the cage. We currently work with three companies that offer this product so I decided to do some research. This post is going to look at that subject in two parts. The first part is what is true and that is that devices can and do get hacked by hackers. The second part is what is false, and that is people getting permanently locked into the devices.
What is the truth? Yes, any device connected to the internet is at risk of getting hacked. There is no getting away from that risk. There are things one can do to reduce that risk from happening and make it harder to accomplish. One thing is to not use the default network name and password given by the manufacturer. These can be easily guessed by a hacker, especially if they know the manufacturer of the router or modem. The network name should not be something that contains personal information that a hacker can use to access your network. The password is one of the easiest things someone can use to secure their network. It is generally recommended to have a password of at least 20 characters. This should be a mix of upper case letters, lower case letters, numbers, and special characters.
Another thing to keep in mind is to update the firmware and software associated with your router and modem and any software used for security. Companies that manufacture such devices and create security software will often update things so that new threats or vulnerabilities can be protected against. I check all our equipment and devices for updates and run scans weekly.
Now let us look at the possibility of getting permanently locked into this device. After some research, I have read that there is a safety feature where the device will unlock when the battery gets low. The manufacturer of CellMate has a support page. Their first suggestion is to contact them. They can access the device remotely and unlock it for you. They also have a video featured on the support page that shows how to get the cage apart with just a flathead screwdriver. A word of warning, using this method will void the warranty. I would suggest just contacting them and having them unlock the device if you cannot unlock it.
So when looking into buying a device such as this, please do your research on the product and any information you hear about it and the company associated with the device. Here is the link to the support page for the product: https://cellmatechastity.com/support/#headline-77-67
