Cover up your Computer Camera if you want total privacy...

Note that this does not stop audio being listened to.


I use a small blob of bluetack over my camera, backed up with  camera & microphone monitoring app Oversight (on iMac)

I use facial recognition to control access to my PC. The usual message which pops up on the screen is "God you're ugly, I'm not  giving you access."

I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro laptop with facial recognition, but can't get it to work for some reason.

A float tip is pleasing in its appearance and even more pleasing in its disappearance.

Kaspersky monitors access to my webcam and lets me know with a pop-up, giving me the option to block it.
