Home, Car and Business Premises Debugging
It’s understandably a distressing thought when you believe that someone may have bugged your property to secretly eavesdrop on your convocations or even secretly recording you where you expect a reasonable level of privacy. If you believe that your home, car or office may be electronically bugged, it is likely very difficult to feel safe and at ease. A bugging or recording device allows eavesdroppers to learn intimate details about your life and even to use those details to their own advantage either on a private or commercial level.
Trust your instinct. Someone might tell you you’re being unreasonable, having to think that your car or room is bugged with recording devices. But that unnerving feeling you have is a very useful tool. And finding hidden audio or video bug is no easy thing to deal with and can be extremely difficult to come to terms with.
We will explain the basics of how to tell if your house and car are bugged with recording devices or GPS trackers. Ultimately the best cause of action is to hire a professional to search and use specialist equipment to detect such equipment and successfully remove it.
It could and can happen to anyone.
Whether you’re working for the government, or you’re a Director in a big company, maybe you’re a public figure, or you’re in a controlling and abusive relationship – your fears about bugs or trackers are completely justified.
People in high-risk positions are prone to tracking and bugging problems, most of whom get an occasional heads-up about potential eavesdropping.
But most regular people have other stuff on their mind and thinking about being a target of bugging is the furthest thing on your mind. Even so, you might fear that your partner, friend or colleague won’t respect your privacy. After all, we’re not short on disturbing stories from victims of bugging scandals.
How to Tell If Your House, Car or Office Is Bugged
Hidden cameras have been used ever since the mid-1900s coinciding with World War 2, with audio surveillance preceding them. These devices have been used by everyone from government spies and Special Forces in their early years to now being used by and being available to anyone on the open market.
In the early years of hidden cameras and audio devices they were the size of your average watch today, so imagine how tiny, practical, durable, and effective these devices are today! With the development of technology, some of these devices can be the size of a penny with the only part needed to visually or audibly monitor you behind a hole as small as a pinhole.
But as nosy and malicious people use the technology to poke around in other people’s business, we also have the knowledge and technology to find these bugs and prevent you from being placed in a vulnerable situation.
With all this being said the answer to the question is that it is extremely difficult to see and detect these devices without good knowledge and equipment.
