Her Tiktok video goes viral after she finds tracking device in her purse


A Texas woman has gone viral on TikTok for sounding the alarm about finding a tracking device in her bag following an evening out. Sheridan Ellis shared that she went out to dinner with a group of friends for a birthday celebration: “At the end of the night, I’m cleaning my purse out and I find this. If you don’t know what this is, it’s a Tile. It’s basically a tracker — people put it on their keys and whatnot. It’s not mine, I don’t know how it got in my purse. I immediately took the battery out … Check your purses and stay safe out there.” In the comments, Ellis said she found the device before she got home and made sure it did not belong to anyone at the dinner. She said she hasn’t reported the incident to police because she didn’t know when the Tile was slipped into her bag, adding that she didn’t want to reinstall the battery.
