Particularly when traveling to an unknown location, many people are concerned about privacy in public restrooms. Although people living in the United States can expect that by law, they are entitled to their privacy, that may not be the case in other countries.
There should always be partitions between public urinals, and these should be long and tall enough to allow privacy. Every toilet should have a door that locks properly. Mirrors should be placed in a way that protects the privacy of restroom users, although this may not be possible in smaller restrooms.
With the recent advent of concealed security cameras, some private establishments may install them in their restroom facilities. This could deter criminal activity, but privacy could be compromised.
