How accurate are mobile phone apps for detecting bugs & cameras?

0 minutes, 40 seconds Read

There are various mobile phone apps available in the market that claim to detect hidden cameras and bugs. However, their accuracy is questionable. While some of these apps may use the smartphone’s camera and flashlight to detect any glint or reflection that might indicate the presence of a camera, others may use radio frequency (RF) signals to identify any hidden listening devices.

The problem with relying on these apps is that they are often not accurate enough to detect all types of hidden cameras and bugs. Some cameras and bugs may use sophisticated technologies that make them undetectable by these apps. Furthermore, the apps may produce false positives or negatives, leading to confusion and unnecessary paranoia. Therefore, it’s recommended to use dedicated bug detectors and hidden camera detectors for more accurate and reliable results.
