FBI now encourages everyone to cover the webcam
FBI Director James Comey spoke recently about privacy and what measures he does for his own safety.

Cover the camera

The director emphasized that he believes people must take responsibility for their own security, and that there are some smart things you should do.

He now believes everyone should cover their camera at the top of their laptops, to prevent anyone else seeing what you're doing.

- If you enter any public office with us and look at the cameras on top of the screens, you will see that they all have a small lid to cover the camera, says the FBI director.

They do so because they do not want unauthorized people to gain access and see what they do.

Because that the camera is always running there is a risk that hackers could break into the computer and see everything the user is doing.

- I think it's a good thing that we hide webcams so that others can not see you, says Comey.

The security firm Hide My Ass! has recently announced that they have begun to make small gadgets that can be mounted on the camera on the laptop in case hackers break into it.

Alternatively one can simply put a piece of tape or bandage over the lens to prevent unwanted access.
