Best hidden camera detector in 2024: easily find bugs, trackers and spy cams

It's estimated that 11% of travellers will be exposed to hidden cameras. Over the last 10 years the way we travel has changed, with AirBnB and VRBO's new business model and the changes in tech giving "digital peeping toms" a lot of opportunity. Cameras have also been found in changing rooms, college dorms and plenty more locations – the anti-spy devices in this list will let you take back control.
