You may be asking “Do I really need one..??”
If this is the case, take 5 minutes to search around the subject. If you are happy to take our word for it, here’s the summary:
F.B.I. Director James Comey once said "I put a piece of tape over the camera. Because I saw somebody smarter than I am had a piece of tape over their camera."
He may have been referring to the famous picture of Mark Zuckerberg, who had taped over his webcam.
Questions to ask yourself:
Do you know who has access to your webcam? Did you read all the terms & services of those apps and plugins you installed?
They may have access to your webcam without you knowing. Your webcam can be turned on remotely with shocking ease, without even turning on that little light.
Are you sure something hasn’t been installed on your computer without you knowing?
Hackers, criminals, law enforcement, the government, intelligence agencies, your employer, your crazy ex?.. The list goes on!
There is only one way to 100% protect yourself; that is with a physical obstruction in front of your webcam. Don’t trust your operating system or security software, these can be compromised. A physical barrier between you and whoever is watching is the ONLY way to 100% stop them watching.
The scariest part..
You can’t delete it when it is out there. Any footage recorded of you through the webcam can potentially haunt you for the rest of your life. You won’t be able to delete it. They may be able to blackmail you with it. There is nothing you can do apart from preventing it in the first place.
The dramatic episode of Black Mirror highlights this shockingly. If someone records footage of you that you don’t want them to have and threatens to publicly release it on the internet, they have power over you. They can then leverage this to blackmail you into sending them money for example.
I have antivirus software, do I need this?
There is only one way to 100% be sure someone cannot record through your webcam. That is with a physical barrier. For example, you may have downloaded a seemingly benign app or plugin that you have unknowingly allowed access to your webcam. Who knows what that app/plugin creator is doing with that access, or what third parties they are also allowing access. Antivirus also is able to be compromised, so don’t rely on it for the sake of your privacy.
