Common Types of Bugs and Technical Surveillance Devices:


  • Cell Phone Recording Apps: Due to the ease of implementation and use, these types of bugs have become popular. Unfortunately, it appears this type of technology is only expected to increase. Monitoring apps can record calls, view browser history, and record surround sounds in a space.
  • Hidden Cameras: As technology advances, cameras are decreasing in size and increasing in quality. These cameras can be difficult to find without special tools: they can be as small as a the head of a screw.
  • Hidden Microphones: Microphones, just like hidden cameras, can be discreet and hidden in the most ambiguous items, such as lamps, power outlets, and pens.
  • Wiretapping: Wiretaps are designed to intercept and listen in on phone calls. Wiretapping for cellphones typically use app software like mentioned above. As smartphones have replaced landlines at home, wiretapping typically occurs in an office on a landline network or VoIP service.
