To help privacy enthusiasts and law enforcement officials find surveillance cameras, developers Kaza Razat and Khalid Mills created the 'Surv' app. The app maps out every outdoor surveillance camera in various cities by crowdsourcing data. The map of watching cameras can then be transmitted to your phone so that you can avoid being watched by big brother. If you see an unmapped camera yourself, you can record its location and share it with fellow camera shy app users.

In addition to showing you a detailed map of every surveillance camera, the app also has some interesting security features. The app can show you your camera exposure in real time on the public, private and municipal levels.
