People often don't consider the fact that they might have been bugged. And when sensitive information leaks, it is already too late. So if you hold some high profile position in the government or in a corporate office, maybe you would like to check for electronic bugs. Regardless of the reasons or possibilities of being bugged, it is a good idea to know how to detect electronic bugs or other similar listening devices that might be hidden in your home or office.
Pay Attention To The Sounds Coming From Your Phone Or TV
If your phone has electronic bugs there are many ways you can detect them. All you have to do is pay attention to the changes in the volume of your phone, check for strange noise or popping sounds that you can't remember hearing before. With the TV is even easier. If there is a surveillance device installed near your TV, then you can often see some odd static or interference when you get to a certain channel. Sounds too familiar? Check for electronic bugs!
Look For Clues
If electronic bugs have been installed in your home, then you should look for things you don't remember seeing before. Any change of color on your walls or ceilings, furniture that got legs and mysteriously changed location, or a drywall debris on your floor can be clear signs that somebody has been in your home with the intention of placing a listening device. In addition, you should never accept any gifts coming from your competitors or from an unknown source, as they are a potential threat to your privacy. Look for strange vans parked in front of your house and pay attention to the repair service that came unannounced – these are all red flags that might mean one thing – someone is trying to spy on you.
Search For Audio Transmitters
A good way to check if someone has installed electronic bugs in your home is to look for audio transmitters. Most, if not all bugs, have radio transmitters, so a radio receiver can do the trick. All you need to do is get a radio receiver and plug in noise-canceling headphones. Then check the frequencies and if you come across a channel that is seriously distorted you have every right to doubt that you are near a radio transmitter. Another option would be to get a police scanner, however make sure you use stud finders to avoid getting misleading results due to the wiring in your walls.
Detect The Bug By The Infrared Heat They Produce
Every bug generates certain amount of heat that can be easily detected with infrared photography or special devices. To get even better result you can also use an ice pack or fire extinguisher to decrease the temperature of your walls.
