Hidden Cameras in Hotels and Airbnb

According to statistics, 1 out of 10 apartments registered on Airbnb have hidden cameras. The problem is especially acute in South Korea. But no one in any other country is immune to this problem.

How do you spot a hidden camera?

🔸 Inspect all strange gadgets (especially those with a small round connector)

🔸 Use a flashlight or smartphone flash to see the camera lens (it’s reflected)

🔸 Examine small objects, including small screws

🔸 Use Wi-Fi sniffers to detect smart devices

🔸 Look for the source of infrared radiation (red beam is visible when lights are off)

We hope you never get into a situation like this. But it’s best to always be on the lookout.
