Can your laptop eye spy on you?

 

It wasn’t until a three-year-old’s parents heard a strange voice in their son’s bedroom that they realized it was possible for hackers to intrude so intimately on their privacy. According to the Huffington Post, the hacker could watch their infant son through the camera built into the baby monitor and could even remotely turn it to watch the parents.

So that’s why we suggest you tape your laptop eye/ webcam so to protect yourself & family from hackers invading your privacy.

Sure, some may call it “Crazy” to cover a laptop webcam with a piece of tape. But others – including leading tech and academic gurus – say it’s one of the smartest things you can do to protect your own privacy. In recent years, thanks to the easily available “creepware” – like the type that was famously used to spy on famous celebrities – spying on unsuspecting females is simpler than ever. You don’t need to be a computer genius to do it. There have been countless cases, about this. While covering a computer’s camera doesn’t protect the device from being hacked, it does prevent a creepy hacker from being able to see what your camera sees.
