Where to hide a wiretap? 13 non-obvious places

Eavesdropping has become a common practice in today’s world. Technologies increasingly make it possible to hide small spy devices in hiding places that go unnoticed even by the most vigilant people. In today’s article, we present 13 of the most unobvious and discreet places to place a wiretap.

1. Clothing

Imagine that the button of your jacket or coat is actually a perfectly concealed spy gear. Technology makes it possible to make such modifications without changing the appearance or function of your clothes and… this is not a sci-fi movie. With eavesdropping placed in this way, you can both carry out surveillance activities and become a victim of them.

2. Handbag

A handbag is an essential for many people, with a whole host of everyday items to fit in. It is often very cluttered, which is why it is the perfect place to hide a spy microphone. A small, inconspicuous pocket or even a seam can be a great hiding place for such a tool.

Thinking about setting up a bug in your handbag? The Soroka S17E professional spy recorder is the perfect solution. A particular advantage is its small size (26.5 mm x 26.8 mm x 5.3 mm). This is what makes it impossible to find it in a cluttered handbag.

3. Headliner in the car

The car is a space where many of us spend a lot of time, often having confidential conversations. The headliner, the inner part of the car roof, is the perfect place to hide an eavesdropper. A device mounted in this location is virtually invisible to the vehicle’s occupants and can work for a very long time.

4. Air freshener

Who would have thought that a device designed to improve the air quality in a room could also record conversations at the same time… Air fresheners, especially electric ones, can easily be turned into sneaky recorders that are indistinguishable from standard fragrances.

Have you suddenly had a dodgy air freshener in your home? Consider whether someone is trying to stalk you!

5. Smoke detector

The smoke detector is another device present in many homes, offices or hotel rooms. Its presence is so obvious that few would suspect it of having eavesdropping functions. And yet, the possibility of hiding a microphone in a smoke detector does exist. What’s more, it’s an increasingly popular practice and one to keep in mind.

So, if you are moving into a new office or hotel room, check to see if there is a secret agent in disguise lurking on the ceiling.

6. Toys

A child’s room seems the least likely place to conduct covert eavesdropping operations. However, you can easily hide a ‘bug’ in one of the toys. This is a great solution for parents who don’t have full confidence in the nanny they hire.

Are you one of the concerned carers? Check out the spy recorder hidden in the MVR-401 toy car. It will provide you with 19 hours of recordings while raising absolutely no suspicion.

7. Key ring

A key ring is a small decorative object that, attached to keys for example, goes literally anywhere. It carries no function and therefore provides an ideal place to hide an eavesdropper. A small dictaphone camouflaged in a key ring is extremely difficult to detect, even for very careful people.

Such a tool is the RecBall – a spy recorder in a key ring. It is a fully decorative pendant with a hidden microphone with a range of up to 8 metres.

8. Extension lead

A power strip is another everyday item that can serve as the perfect place to hide an eavesdropper. In a jumble of cables and plugs, a small spy device becomes virtually invisible and difficult to track. The big advantage of this type of placement is the constant power supply, so you eliminate the need to constantly charge your wireless devices. 

9. Memory stick

The memory stick is the most popular storage medium, which can also be used as an eavesdropping device. The discreetness of this type of recorder is ensured by the fact that it still acts as data storage. Its presence on a desk in the company of computers will not arouse suspicion.

Check out the MVR-160 digital voice recorder. Its trivial operation and long operating time of up to 15 hours make it a device literally for everyone.

In today’s world, a wristwatch is not just a dial and hands, but also a potential spy tool. Smart timepieces can easily be modified to the level of a sound recorder, while remaining functional and stylish accessories.

On the other hand, it is not only popular smartwatches that can serve as a surveillance device. Classic versions also provide the perfect place to hide eavesdropping. All you need to do is insert a ‘bug’ into its mechanism.

11. Pen

A pen lying on a table or held in the hand during an important business meeting is a typical image. However, a model equipped with a microphone can effortlessly record conversations in complete discretion.

Check out the digital voice recorder hidden in the MQ-78 pen. This extremely handy device will give you up to 20 hours of use. It will allow you to take voice notes from even the longest meetings.
