What to Do About Hidden Cameras at Your Tanning Salon
Many clients of salons enjoy using the services of their tanning beds. Many upscale tanning salons are available with reasonable prices, and the simplicity and comfort of these places is very popular. It is often impossible (given the weather) or cumbersome (dealing with tanning lamps or instant tans) to get tan outside or at home, so more commonly a salon is used for those that want to keep their tan year round.
Some question has arisen from stories in the news about the safety and privacy of these tanning salons. There have been cases reported where someone has installed a camera in either the tanning bed or the changing area. A client’s naked pictures could be used for various purposes, including particularly posting online. The police have even raided some tanning salons that were engaging in this sleazy operation. In many cases they have found wireless cameras hidden in many locations in the tanning rooms.
Certainly, every tanning salon is not doing this, or even many of them. But it is a good idea that you are not one of the unlucky ones that visits a salon that is breaking the law and violating your privacy. There are ways that you can protect yourself from it ever happening to you. Look into the reputation of a salon and see if there have been any complaints or allegations against the business.
In addition, you can look for the hidden cameras yourself. While you are in the room for changing, first look to see if there are any cameras visible peeking behind vents or gaps in the ceiling. Of course, some cameras are as small as a pin, so it isn’t possible to detect all of them that way. That’s when the hidden camera detector comes in.
Using a camera detector couldn’t be easier. Camera detectors are small in size and can be carried in your purse or pocket. They work by detecting the RF signal that cameras emit. When they find something they beep and flash lights in proximity. So you should definitely wave them all around the room and tanning bed. If you find anything, leave immediately, and contact the authorities if you wish.
So it is nice to know that you can choose a tanning salon without worry that you will be taken advantage of in that way. The sleazy spa owners will never predict that you were smarter than his cameras!
