You know the old saying “it’s so simple even a baby can use it”? Well, sometimes, that is true about a product even if you don’t want a baby using it. Like the eBay app. 14 month old Sorella Stoute used it to accidentally purchase a 1962 Austin Healey for her dad. Luckily for her parents, the car cost only $225.
It could have been a much more expensive car. Sorella’s dad said, “She decided to open the eBay app and started clicking around and one thing led to another and we own a car.” Instead of fighting the purchase, Mr. and Mrs. Stoute decided to keep the car.
To prevent the toddler from moving to the higher priced models, Dad has added some safeguards to keep his daughter from shopping. He is now using facial recognition to keep his phone locked, and has switched to a new PIN code. Smart man.
