Hidden Camera Detector app helps you detect hidden spy cameras in hotel rooms, changing rooms and detect CCTV cameras.
whether you are travelling, staying in hotel rooms or Airbnb
or even trying cloths in changing rooms, scan for pinhole cameras as well as infrared cameras with this app.

App has 2 modes -

1. Scan with magnetic sensor - With this mode, app analyse magnetic activity around suspicious objects and if find magnetic activity similar to camera , it beep with red status so that you can further investigate.

How to use - Move top left corner of your iPhone very close to the suspicious objects. It could be screw, flowerpot, shower head or anything that you find suspicious. If app beeps when brought closer to the object and when moved away, stop beeping , further investigate for camera lens.

With 1.1 release, now you can calibrate this detection mode. For iPad users, calibration settings may need to be minimum. You can calibrate as per strength of magnetic sensor.

2. Infrared detector mode - You can also detect infrared cameras. Just close all lights and open IR camera mode and scan moving iPhone 360 degrees, If you see pink light or blue light that is invisible to naked eye, then it is infrared light and could be infrared camera.

Test with TV remote control head - See TV remote control head with normal eye and press any button, you won't see any light. Then open normal camera or open app and see through the camera - you will see white light. Reason is infrared light is invisible to naked eye but it is sensed by digicam. This way you can detect IR camera if any.

App also provides tip & Tricks so that you can stay protected with some simple tricks and hacks.

App doesn’t work as specified

I purchase this app looking to detect and find hidden cameras.

It didn’t work. The app use the forward facing camera instead of the back facing camera is specified.

As soon as I installed and opened the app. The has been beeping uncontrollably at everything with pause.

I highly doubt that this app is detecting anything of any significants.

I turned the camera towards myself and continued to beep.

I guess I have a hidden camera embedded in me I don’t know about....smh

Developer Response ,

Hi, app uses front camera because apple has applied IR filter on back cameras.

There are 2 different ways to detect camera. First uses magentic sensor and 2nd detects infrared camera. Please visit for how to use app or you can use know more option within the app.

Please let us know in case of further issue.

Infrared detector does not work

The iPhone back camera(opposite the screen side) has an infrared filter. The app uses the back camera so you can never detect infrared with this app. The front camera(screen side) does not have a filter and you can see the infrared light from a remote control without the use of this app.

Developer Response ,

Please update the app. This issue has been resolved in version 1.2. If helps, please update comments.
