Here Are Some Of The Hacks You Should Keep In Mind
1. TWO WAY MIRROR RECOGNITION
Trial rooms are always decorated with glittering lights and huge mirrors. But there might be a hidden camera behind the mirror watching you and saving the videos when you are changing your clothes.
Best way to recognize these two-way mirrors is to touch it with your index finger if the reflection is too close or you see no gap between the finger and reflection then stay aware it is a two-way mirror. You might be watched by a hidden camera from the other side of the mirror.
2. SWITCH OFF THE LIGHTS AND LOOK FOR RED LIGHT
The first thing to do when in a trial room is to switch off lights and put the mobile phone on camera mode, look for a red light. If you find one come out of the trial room immediately and inform others or call for help.
The thing is the two-way mirror concept in order to work demands for darker surrounding and light on the other side. When you switch off the lights the two-way mirror tend to be translucent due to which the red light and another side of the mirror is visible.
3. USE PHONE AND MAKE A CALL
Another way is to make a call from inside the trial room. If hidden cameras are arround you can not make a call. The call will disconnect or be blocked. The fibre optics intercepts the mobile signals during signal transfer causing blocked calls and disconnected calls. Being precautious is always better than suffering.
4. DON’T REMOVE EVERYTHING
Remember, the purpose of the trial room is only to check how the cloth fits, never remove all the clothes you are wearing. Whatever you are up to put on, try to wear over the clothes you are wearing. You can have a close look within the confined rooms of your residence.
When you take initiative to spread awareness or help someone out, it is your deed that saves you back. Share this information where ever possible and be the part of the chain saving the owner of every woman. let your surrounding be safe and make a safer place to live.
Love yourself and be safe.
