Do you put tape over the little camera on your laptop or tablet?

I looked something up on my Mom's laptop today, and noticed there was a little piece of tape over the camera lens...When I asked why she said " Because hackers can just hack your camera and watch you get dressed, so can the government"


Granted, I don't know why the government or a hacker would want to spy on a senior citizen getting dressed...but she worries.



Do you?

I put a piece of paper over it when i noticed in the corner of my screen a microphone symbol popping up.  I got paranoid with it  LOL.

We turn ours around so the lens faces away.

My laptop is closed when I'm not on it. Even if someone were to hack the camera, they would be looking at the piece of plastic below the keyboard, not me getting dressed.
