These do not qualify as 'Pinhole' cameras but they are just hidden cameras. Web-cam types. though these are not there everywhere as the sms says, it is there happening in very few places.

Just turn off Google's safe search and search with appropriate keywords, you will hit many.

OK, I have had enough of this.

This test simply means that the mirror coating is on your side of the glass.

One way mirrors are nothing but half reflective, half transparent glasses. The only reason they look like one way is when one side is brightly lit than the other, it reflects most of the light causing the light coming from other side to be totally hidden.

your best bet is to make a fist hole on mirror and look into the other side, thereby making your side completely dark and hoping there is some light on the other side. if the person on other side is in complete darkness, there is nothing you can do. Well, one thing you can try is point a bright flash light and see is that can illuminate the other side (hold it against the mirror so none of it is reflected to yourself).

OR physically go behind the mirrored side to see if there is a room for anybody to have a hidden compartment to see you. if there is another changing room or an open space, you are safe.

This could well be an agenda to defame some brands. As if this could not be happening else where. If it is happening then the mall owners should stop it completely. Like someone said, a switch to the bulb should be provided in every room. Switch off, change, switch on, look, swtich off, change back to original clothes, get out.

However, there is a solution, if it is real:
