Most laptops can only be unlocked with a correct password entry. As an additional security measure, some laptops use the built-in camera to take a photo of whomever enters a wrong passcode. These computer cams have been picking up on a few pretty wacky hackers. Cats, deviant geniuses the whole lot of them, have been caught at the center of every one of these crimes.

It's no secret that cats love social media. Kitty Snapchat posts are all over the internet, for example, and almost every cat pic ever posted goes viral. So, perhaps, the four-pawed computer miscreants just wanted to catch glimpses of themselves online. The humans who discover the screenshots of their feline companions tend to realize that cats are incredibly smart, adorable even in criminality, and perhaps plotting world domination via the the Interweb.

A collection of these criminals can be be found below.
