Oftentimes people who deal with sensitive information are concerned that someone might be keeping tabs on their movements or listening in on their confidential conversations. Even in everyday life, people occasionally have concerns about being spied on, especially if they're involved in a lawsuit or some other contentious situation with another person where discretion is important. In your business, you may fear the competitors are listening in on confidential meetings, spying on product development, or tracking internal communications which discuss trade secrets. There are a variety of ways that someone may secretly keep tabs another person or business including:
- Monitoring the whereabouts of a vehicle using a GPS tracking device
- Placing an audio bug to listen in on private conversations
- Setting up a data bugging device to pull private files
- Hiding a covert camera to capture secret video
If you or your company are being watched in one of these ways, it is possible to use a detecting device to discover the bug. This is often accomplished using an RF (radio frequency) detector which identifies bugs transmitting an RF signal. When selecting your device, the first thing you will need to know is where various bugging devices fall on the RF spectrum in order to determine the most effective detector for your needs.
