Protect your privacy from spy hidden camera lenses. This app is a tool to help you detect disguised camera lens that you suspect are present in a room. Equivalent to camera detector gadgets, it tries to detect using the tell-tale signs of tiny reflections of hidden camera lenses. Here are some actual news headlines: ◆ “Oil rig worker says she was secretly recorded” ◆ “Motel manager accused of setting up hidden camera” ◆ “Models find hidden cameras in apartment” ◆ “Man put hidden camera in restaurant bathroom” ◆ “Hidden cameras in gym’s tanning room” ◆ “Cameras in the bedroom – I was shamed by my own husband” A free do-it-yourself way of detecting cameras from instructables, also based on detecting tiny lens reflections: “Step 1: Find a tube that's good for looking through. A cardboard tube from a roll of toilet paper or paper towels is best. Step 2: All you need is a flashlight or something that you can use to focus a beam of light in a dark room. Attaching a couple of directional LEDs to the outside of the cardboard tube can work also if you don't have a flashlight. Step 3: With one hand, hold up the toilet paper tube to your eye. With your other hand, hold up the flashlight at about eye level and point it away from you. With one eye, look through the tube and scan the room. If there are any small points of light bouncing back, inspect it further. It might be a camera.” INSTRUCTIONS: Use this tool after your own visual inspection and investigation. Scan the room first without your phone and once you find something suspicious point the phone camera to the suspected object. The app alternately turns on and off the camera flash to detect the signature of a camera lens. Carefully adjusting the distance and angle relative to the target object helps as well adjusting the level of lighting in the room. When automatic mode is ineffective or distracting you should use manual mode. In both manual and automatic modes you must use your own judgment as this is just a tool like what you would do with an expensive hidden camera detector gadgets or the do-it-yourself detector described above. MANUAL Detection: Anytime that you see the signature of a camera lens you can single-tap on the screen and put a marker on the suspected camera lens. Yellow overlay - this signifies that the surface might be metallic or glass-like and that a great amount of reflectivity is being detected. Cyan overlay - this means that the surface is changing in color consistent with the general hue of camera lenses. AUTOMATIC Detection: The app will continuously try its best to put a marker where it thinks a camera lens may be present. To exclude surfaces that are generating lots of false positives you can zoom the camera or carefully change the distance or angle of the phone to the target. BONUS: Magnetic meter to manually detect the slight magnetic field present in electronic devices including hidden spy cameras. BE SAFE and START SCANNING!

    Don’t buy. This thing thought my Xbox logo, and several random objects (including icons on books) were cameras. Even if it did work, the app assumes you already see the camera and you’re just pointing at it with your phone to confirm. Total waste of 3 dollars
  • Great app

    Good app! Using this app, iPhone is a detection device. I bought this and it works. Now I can find hidden cameras in the room, but its operation requires careful and patient,otherwise I won't find the camera.

    This app is very useful and easy to use! It does exactly what it says it does. And I makes me feel a lot safer in hotel rooms!

    This app is junk and totally useless. There is no function except for a stupid pink circle that points to almost anything reflective or circular. I would be careful of any new, possibly fake reviews that may cloud or contradict this statement. I will be demanding a refund for complete waste of my time.
