Does your PC or laptop have a webcam built into it? You should cover the lens with tape whenever you don’t need to use it. That’s the advice from FBI director James Comey, who describes it as a simple but important security measure.
PC webcams are extremely easy to hack with malicious soware and that same soware can disable the lile LED light that lets you know the camera is on. The soware is used to spy on unsuspecng PC users. While few of us have to worry about giving away state secrets the thought that someone might be watching us isn’t something we’re very enthusiasc about. If only we could fix every possible PC security issue with a lile bit of black electrical tape.
