Whether you’re on the run or just prefer not to watched by strangers, it’s handy to know how to minimise the amount of surveillance on your hotel room.

What To Check

“Even if you’re not doing anything wrong, you are being watched and recorded. Suspicion-less surveillance does not become okay simply because it’s only victimising 95% of the world instead of 100%.”

- Edward Snowden.

You’ve seen spy movies, right? Time to start channelling your inner James Bond. Check within appliances and objects in the room, and behind picture frames, smoke detectors and power outlets.

Devices You Can Use

Invest in a hidden camera detector, a bug guard and/ or portable jammers to combat hidden surveillance tech.

Tap-Proof Your Mobile

Apps such as Seecrypt, Silent Circle or Redphone, all of which protect your communication and private information.

Online Security

Google and Facebook hold more than 90% of information that is spy-worthy so it is mostly up to your what you display on their. You can use Tor (The Onion Router) to browse privately, and download apps such as Hushmail to keep your information secure.

Go Off The Grid

To go MIA completely ditch your smartphone, stop using social media and turn off your GPS.
