How can you tell if there is a hidden camera in a mirror?

It would be best to shine the flashlight at the mirror from different angles. It would help if you were looking for odd reflections and flashes. This often works as the hidden camera’s lens will reflect the powerful flashlight and give its position away. This method doesn’t always work, and you need to make the room as dark as possible. To ensure you are not plagued with surveillance devices, it’s best to hire a private investigator.
