Cover Your Webcam With A Tape To Get Rid From Hackers

You might think to cover your webcam with tape is a crazy task but it’s true, even the Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and FBI Director James Comey did the same as I said just now. The reason behind it is simple, to guard against hackers and intruders.

Your safeness is your task before anything worst happened. So use this technique if you feel something undesirable tasks are happening in your laptop or desktop.

During a conference at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, Comey replied “Heck yeah, heck yeah. And also, I get mocked for a lot of things, and I am much mocked for that, but I hope people lock their cars… lock your doors at night. I have an alarm system. If you have an alarm system you should use it; I use mine.” Besides, he had also told that it was common practice at the FBI and other Government offices to cover laptop and computers. Similarly, it was also one of the “sensible things” that everyone should be doing to “take responsibility for their safety and security.” So use this technique to save your privacy.

It is also noted that putting tape over the lens of your computer’s webcam would not solve the problem since many internet-connected devices are a security nightmare. But due to the insecure implementation, these internet-connected or Internet of Things (IoT) are so vulnerable that hackers are routinely hijacking the cameras and use it as a cyber weapon to attack.

So it’s essential to make our web camera security strong than thinking about just webcam.
