"Smile, you are being filmed by a hidden camera!": how to find out that someone is watching youPictolic
Do you have a feeling of discomfort when you are in an unfamiliar room, whether it is a hotel room or a hospital ward? It seems that you are being watched as if ... "What nonsense is this," you decide and drive these thoughts away.
But in fact, this scenario is quite possible, because the hidden camera is not always installed so that you can see it. That's why it's hidden.
In this article, we want to talk about a few simple ways to calculate whether there is a surveillance camera in the room. Remember, perhaps in the future it will save you from a lot of awkward situations.
Take a picture of the room
If you entered the room and suspected something was wrong ... rather turn off the light. Then take a picture of the room on a smartphone with the flash turned on. Now our task is to carefully study the picture. In the light of the flash, you can easily notice the glare from the lens of the hidden camera.
Search the room
With the development of technology, companies have learned to make hidden cameras so small that you can hide them almost anywhere. Therefore, if any suspicions arise, immediately check all cabinets, cabinets, shelves, figurines, flower pots and other places where, hypothetically, it would be possible to install a small camera.
It is quite possible that the recording device is located in some inconspicuous niche, and a special hole has been made for the lens. In this case, your task becomes much more complicated, but do not forget about the first method of calculating cameras.

"This clock has a strange dial ... and this vase does not fit into the overall interior of the room at all...". If you have such thoughts, it is better to make sure that the incomprehensible things are just the result of the tastelessness of their owner, and not the place to install a surveillance camera.It is often in such "inappropriate" objects that recording devices are hidden.

Developer Julian Oliver has created a special script that helps other people defend the right to their privacy. By running it on your mobile device, you can find cameras that work over Wi-Fi, and even stop data transmission.
Since most modern surveillance cameras send recorded data to their owner via Wi-Fi, this script will come in handy as never before. But there is one "but": in some countries, such interference in someone else's network is punishable by law, for example, in the United States, you can easily go to prison for such an outburst. There will be no hiding from the surveillance cameras there…
Even the most honest landlords on Airbnb sometimes install hidden cameras in their apartments. This is necessary to protect yourself from possible fraud and violations on the part of the tenant and, if necessary, receive monetary compensation. However, you should definitely be warned about the recording device. Otherwise, you have every right to complain to law enforcement agencies.
