A TikToker has gone viral for her story about seeing her uber driver break into her apartment while she was asleep. The chilling video has viewers shocked.
TikToker Gianna Rao recently shared a terrifying story about her Uber driver breaking into her apartment while she was asleep.
In an interview, the 22-year-old explained what happened.
“The Uber driver picked up my boyfriend and me and dropped us off outside of my apartment at 12:50 a.m. Nothing was suspicious — we went to bed, and I locked my bedroom door. The next morning, I woke up and checked my doorbell camera, when I noticed there was footage of somebody inside my apartment at 1:40 a.m. I didn’t recognize this person right away because he had a mask pulled up, and I was in shock — so I showed my boyfriend, and he said it was our Uber driver.”

“He was wearing the same outfit, and after looking more carefully and pausing the video on his face, it was clearly him. There was only footage of him leaving, and never entering through the front door. In the videos, he stands in the doorway after opening it from the inside, and then proceeds back inside the apartment. So, we looked around to see how he could’ve gotten inside and noticed that he cut the screen out of my living room window and crawled through. We don’t know how long he was inside for. After seeing the footage, we immediately called the police,”
Viewers encouraged Gianna to share the footage.
“I was shocked and completely horrified. My sense of security was completely taken away from me. If my bedroom door was not locked that night, I don’t know what would’ve happened”
Gianna reached out to Uber regarding the break-in the day of the incident, but their response efforts left her disappointed.
“They said they would look into it, but I never heard anything back from them, which they said I would. After my video started to get views and people started to tag them in my comments, they then contacted me again.
Uber only responded once her TikTok went viral.
From what they have told me, they removed him from Uber, so he can no longer be a driver. It’s upsetting it took so many people in my comments for them to do something about this because they didn’t seem to care that much when I contacted them on my own without the publicity.”
In the interview, Gianna was asked why she decided to share her story via TikTok and she said, “I think it is important to spread awareness that things like this can happen. I would’ve never thought or expected that my Uber driver would break into my apartment. I feel like I usually put a sense of trust in these drivers to get me to where I need to be safely; however, he clearly violated my trust and feeling of safety. I think it’s important, especially for women, to be aware of things like this happening.”
Understandably, Gianna is now skeptical about using ride-share apps.
“I am honestly very scared,” she said. “I refuse to be dropped off at my actual destination anymore, and will never ride alone.”
