Bug detectors can be used to detect suspicious signals, like wifi, Bluetooth and digital signals, that could indicate the presence of bugging technology. This could be in the form of microphones, mobile phones or other types of recording systems that have been specifically placed there with the intention of secretly capturing confidential information.
Bug detectors help to prevent this. They can come in many different forms. Some people will carry smaller bug detection devices in their pockets whereas sometimes, a full system may be installed for the ultimate protection. These devices will detect the suspicious signals, even if it is deliberately weak or hard to pick up. The devices generating the signals can then be sourced and destroyed if they are indeed found to be dangerous. Bug detectors have a very important function in protecting information and ensuring security stays tight. They may be used by a range of people working in security.
