After 3 years on the Store and hundreds of thousands of downloading all over the world, Dontspy spy bug detector renews itself with a 2.0 version!

Now reading data is very simple, following the instructions of the gauge, the bars showing the signal intensity and the line showing the variation of the electromagnetic field during the search. Never before so easy and accurate!

Transform your iPhone in a detector of hidden electronic devices such as smartphones, spy bugs, microphones, hidden cameras and so on! Even if they are turned off!

Are you going to check your room, your workplace or, are you simply curious to try one of the most astonishing uses of your iPhone? This is the app you need!

There is no magic: every speaker, microphone, cellphone, spy bug, hidden camera has in itself an electromagnetic field: iPhones and iPads are equipped with a magnetometer (used by the compass), dontspy does nothing else than elaborating the data captured by the magnetometer and it feels the presence of spy bugs, cellphones and microphones, excluding other things such as metal or the Earth's electromagnetic field: simple but genial.

Consider that the magnetometer on iPhones is on the upper right, and on iPads in the back top centre.

Its operation is simple as well as its interface. Just press start and use the phone as a real spy bug detector! Through the magnetometer present on the compass of iPhones and iPads, the app will found the electromagnetic field generated by microphones and speakers present in these devices, even if they are off!

A professional device performing the same work costs almost 1000 dollars, whereas just with a few cents you will have the opportunity of getting a professional spy bug detector!

The detection of spy bugs and microphones is effected also through walls, clothes, wood and many other materials! So you will have the possibility to detect spy bugs, microphones, cellphones, hidden cameras even behind walls, tables or under clothes!

The uses of dontspy are not just these, you can also employ it to look for your cellphone in the room, even if off, maybe lost under a pile of clothes, by simply setting it on and moving!

Please note: Detect by keeping your phone far from potential metals or magnets, otherwise the given data might be distorted.

Waste-refund requested

What a waste. I put a $10 pinky ring right around the phone (all around a 7+ iPhone including the spot indicated on the screen) and got a gold reading. The screw/drill sensor produced 3 different results on 3 different passes of the same section of wall. And finally, the "spy detector"-OMG-what can I say? How about it found something right away! My TV sound bar. My alarm clock. My ironing board(that was a surprise!). However, placed directly near, practically on top of, a wi if camera, nothing. So, my advice-save your money until this app can at least be refined enough to actually do SOMETHING it says it will do. Unless you're having a tough time locating any speakers in your dwelling.
BTW-my 7+ is completely up to date so no excuses about not running the latest updates.

In the description of the app is indicated that you have to stay away from metal and speakers, because they emit a magnetic field. In the other case, the app work properly.

It worked

Dude this thing actually worked and to be honest I thought it was BS myself and I only got because it came with the bundle pack. But I tried it out and I don’t know how but the thing detected gold every time.. now it thinks my knee is made out of metal for some reason lol. But no it actually works... at least for me it did. So if it doesn’t work for someone like the guy that gave this a bad review i suggest you either follow directions or get a modern up to date cell phone... just my opinion.

I tried and I was very sceptic minutes later it showed something in the wall I tried to figure out but I could not see anything could be something behind the wall I mean who would instal a device behind walls and then showed and point the smoke detector I was freaking but I could not see anything either and finally 2 more at the vents of air conditioning really I am going to have to open those vents see what it could be but so far no cameras o any other device what you think
