Watch Out! Hidden Cameras In Your Hotel Room!
The point of both stories is that cameras can easily be hidden in plain sight and could be recording your every moment.

Use your phone
Turn off the lights in your room, and close the curtains. Try to make the room completely dark. Next, turn on your phone’s camera and walk around the room with it. If your see any red dot flashing, there may be a painhole camera in your room (or another Infared device). Take a closer look.
Check the reflected light
When the room is dark, use a flashlight and check out dark parts of the room for any reflective material, as this may show that a camera lens is present.
Reduce the illumination
The illumination is reduced, and the ordinary wireless pinhole camera cannot record a clear picture, which is one of the easiest methods.
To avoid the entry of unknown people
In and out of public places, such as hotels, public locker rooms or public toilets, you should first check whether there are suspicious persons or improper items around. Pay attention to whether the door and window are closed.
Adjust to place or block items suspected of being installed with the camera.
