3. Do The Mobile Test

The presence of a hidden camera inside the trial room will create problems for your mobile. The problem is nothing serious, only your mobile will not receive any network or signals. So make sure to check if your receptions are getting blocked outside and inside the trial room. If anyhow you cannot make a call inside the trial room but you were able to do it outside, then understand that there is a hidden camera present inside the room.

4. Connect Your Mobile With Wi-Fi

Your mobile can be your best friend inside a trial room. Hidden cameras need Wi-Fi to run. So while entering the trial room, switch on your Wi-Fi and see if you can connect to the network closest inside the room. Use the ‘Fing’ app to identify other devices running with the same network. If you get anything like an IP camera or the names of any camera manufacturer, then you can be certain that you are being looked upon by a hidden camera.

5. Stare At The Mirror Closely

2-way mirrors are the most commonly used things to invade someone’s privacy inside a trial room. Stare at the mirror for some time closely, you might get to see something, only if it is a 2-way mirror. Lean towards the mirror and place your eyes against it. Make sure to block lights from your eye by putting your hands over them. If you block the light properly and stare for some time, you will be able to see what is behind the 2-way mirror, whether there is anyone or any hidden camera.
