You can catch those who violate your privacy with a single gesture, find infrared cameras.

If you feel that you are being watched, if you have trust problems, if the idea that they can record you in a public place where you are going is gnawing at you… Here is a surprising suggestion; you can use your phone cameras to find hidden cameras.

The increasing of the role of technology in daily life to very high levels also brings about discussions about the decreasing role of privacy in our private lives. Every movement, every moment of our life can become visible to others via the Internet. Moreover, we do not do this under the pressure of others either. We ourselves share almost every moment of our life.

However, apart from the shares we make ourselves, the danger of being followed and followed stands out as a problem that we can always face.

“Just because I’m paranoid doesn’t mean I’m not being followed.”

Even those of us who have the most naive feelings have a certain amount of paranoia in them. Especially in the period when technology has advanced so much; to think that our phone is being listened to, to think that we are being watched with cameras are actually not unreal things at all.

Is it really possible to capture the camera signal, especially in a hotel, a communal office or any place where you have a question mark about where you can be viewed?


Yes! It is possible to violate the confidentiality of a hidden camera that emits an IR (infrared) signal. And in a very simple way. Camera phones, which are now in almost all our pockets, are just what we need to find a hidden camera.

If the camera uses infrared light, your phone can pick up what your eyes can’t.

To make sure that your privacy is respected, it will be enough for us to point the camera on our smartphones at a camera that emits infrared (IR) rays. Although the human eye cannot detect the infrared rays that cameras use to capture movement in a low-light area, the sensor on phone cameras can simply reveal it. Sometimes you can easily see this with the front and sometimes with the rear camera.

With a little experiment, you can check whether your phone camera finds IR signals:

He will see that you need a TV remote control for this. But the most important thing is that you are in a low-light area.
Turn on your phone’s camera and point it at the remote control.
In order for the remote controls to send the IR signal, press a key while pointing your phone.
You will see a purple light burning on the remote control. This is an infrared ray.
The rear camera of some model phones may not capture this beam. Therefore, the selfie camera (the camera on the front of the phone) may be a more effective solution in some moments.
Now it’s time to find the camera… in a low-light area, you suspect that you are being followed. What you need to do to find the camera is again that simple. As you see the IR signal you have captured from the remote control, scan the area you think is a ‘hidden camera’ with your phone’s camera… And there it is… (if it’s really there)
