Check for wires: Hidden cameras usually require some kind of power source, so check for wires that could lead to an outlet or battery pack. Though this would not work on temporary wireless hidden camera.
GPS tracking devices are used to track the location of vehicles, people, and even pets. They can be hidden in vehicles, clothing, or even implanted under the skin. Commonly used by stalkers, although it can be used by fleet trackers as well which is a white-hat way of using GPS trackers.

Use a GPS tracker detector: You can purchase a GPS tracker detector, which can detect the signal from GPS trackers within a certain range. These detectors can be found online or at spy shops such as ours. Our NO-BUG is one of cheapest way to detect all signals emitting device as most spy tools need to send signals somewhere else.
Use a GPS jammer: GPS jammers emit a signal that disrupts the GPS signal, making it difficult for a GPS tracker to transmit its location. However, using a GPS jammer in public is illegal in many countries, so be sure to check your local laws before using one.
Check for unfamiliar devices: If you suspect someone is tracking you, check your vehicle or personal belongings for any unfamiliar devices. GPS trackers are often small and discreet, so they can be hidden in inconspicuous places such as under the dashboard of a car or in a backpack.
Audio surveillance devices or listening devices are used to listen in on conversations. They can be disguised as everyday objects like pens, watches, or even USB drives. With its small form factor and it being audio-only devices, it’s one of hardest spy device to search for as most modern listening devices are wireless and have long battery life. Thus it’s more effective to use special tools to detect or block out listening device completely.
How to block out listening devices
Use Spy Device Detector: There are counter surveillance equipment that can detect various spy devices, such as our NO-BUG. It’s commonly the cheapest anti-spy tool available and affordable way for households to protect themselves from listening devices.
Use Signal Jammers: Signal jammers can be used to block the signals of listening devices. They work by emitting a high-frequency noise that disrupts the signals of listening devices.
