Bug Sweeps Explained

Bug Sweeps

Bug Sweeps, or technical surveillance counter measures (TSCM) sweeps, are a physical and electronic examination of a survey area to detect and locate surreptitious electronic eavesdropping devices. Bug Sweeps include detection of audio bugging devices, video bugging devices, microphone taps, phone taps, wifi networks security issues, GSM bugs, store and burst forward bugging devices, cellular eavesdropping devices, hidden cellphones, illicit IMSI catchers, wired and wireless bugging devices, carrier current bugs, GPS trackers, and spyware/malware. Detection of both transmitting (active) and passive (non active) electronic eavesdropping threats and devices are performed.

A thorough electronic eavesdropping detection service includes detection of a full range of electronic eavesdropping devices from old technology to the most current types of bugging devices. This includes cyber bugs that use Wi-Fi, BlueTooth or a cellular network to record, store and burst forward the collected information. And, detection of vulnerabilities in networks that can be exploited for electronic eavesdropping purposes are also included.

Professional bug sweeps include multiple analyses performed by skilled, experienced and well trained Specialists. A variety of laboratory grade equipment is used to perform multiple signal analyses that detect various types of electronic eavesdropping devices. A physical inspection is also performed in conjunction with the electronic bug sweep. Radio frequency (RF) spectrum analysis, camera detection, non-linear junctions detection, Wi-Fi security analysis, IMSI catcher detection and many other examinations are conducted to detect a full range of illicit eavesdropping devices.

Once the bugging devices are detected, the threat device(s) is physically located and the threat is addressed. Ultimately, professional bug sweeps detect and address surreptitious devices, identify electronic eavesdropping vulnerabilities, and equip the client with information to help protect valuable information and privacy going forward.

Bugging Devices We Detect

Our bug sweeps detect a full range of bugging devices from the most advanced electronic eavesdropping devices to less sophisticated bugging devices. We detect cyber eavesdropping devices that use bluetooth, wi-fi or the cellular network to forward your sensitive information to an eavesdropper. As well, our services address vulnerabilities with bluetooth, wi-fi and cellular networks that can be exploited for electronic eavesdropping purposes. We also detect hybrid bugging devices. And, bugging devices that use older type technology that require the eavesdropper, or their accomplice, to recover the bugging device to get the collected information are also detected.

A ComSec LLC bug sweep detects the following types of illicit electronic eavesdropping devices and threats:

  • Audio or optical bugging devices
  • GSM, 3g, 4g and 5g cellular eavesdropping devices
  • Wireless bugs
  • Wire & mic taps and telephone taps
  • Hidden cellphones
  • Surreptitious Wi-Fi networks
  • Carrier current bugs
  • Micro wireless video devices
  • Illicit IMSI catchers
  • Laser or infrared eavesdropping devices
  • GPS trackers

Learn About Our Specialists & Our Equipment

Separating Truth From Fiction

Does eavesdropping require large or complex bugging devices?

No, it does not. Bugging devices have evolved. They are now small, and most are very easy to use. ComSec’s bug sweep pros detect large and small bugging devices. A ComSec bug sweep will also detect simple to complex bugging devices.

Are listening devices only used by government agencies?

Foreign countries, corporate spies, competitors, executives, spouses, family members, neighbors, and other everyday people also use them. Our bug sweep experts detect a wide range of listening devices.

Do listening devices cost thousands of dollars?

No, not all bugging devices are costly. The cost ranges from very expensive to just ten dollars. Many police grade bugs and taps are available to the public at very low prices. A professional bug sweep can detect the expensive and low cost devices.

Know Your Adversary

Can I Detect Bugging Devices With My Own Bug Detector?

In general, it is very hard for untrained people to locate listening devices.

Do You Know What Bugging Devices Look Like?

Bugging devices can be very small and may be hidden in every day objects that are normally in your home. So, the bug may be hiding in plain sight.  For instance, bugging devices may be hidden in furniture, wall clocks, pens, calculators or other items. Your electronic devices and technology services may also be compromised.

Do You Have Bug Detection Expertise?

Often, bug detectors that are sold to the public, alarm on any type of electronic device or only the strongest signal. If that happens to you, how will you be able to tell if your bug detector found an actual listening device? It takes the right equipment and expertise to locate eavesdropping devices and vulnerabilities.
