Airbnbs are a great option if you’re looking for a more homey experience. However, it turns out some Airbnb hosts are worried about you making yourself too at home.
A viral TikTok posted by cyber security expert Marcus Hutchins goes into detail about hidden cameras placed around Airbnbs and hotel rooms — and how to spot them. The video has racked up 33.4 million views on the platform, telling viewers to check for “suspicious places.” Hutchins explains a technique where guests can use their phone flashlight and shine them at suspected items. Cameras give off a blue-ish reflection. He also mentioned this technique can work with two way mirrors.
