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

Posted by   + Show Post

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?

Yep. Ever since I saw an episode on criminal minds where that happened.

No.  The laptop is almost always on the dining room table, so all they'd see is my dusty hutch.

A bright green light goes on when my camera is on. I am pretty sure I would notice that. My computer is only on when I am actually working on it anyways. If someone wanted to stare at me working on my computer they just have to deal with no make up and my hair not being styled. lol

If someone wants to hack in to watch me naked they are punished enough by seeing me naked.

My friend did that to me as a joke. He hacked my computer and made it go bezerk. The disk tray was shooting out my disk then pulling it back in. My music suddenly came on. And he was messing with the volume. My pictures were flashing all over the screen. I was flipping out until I noticed my web can was on. And when I pulled it up he was laughing so had he had tears rolling down his face and was waving at me.

But as a whole no I don't put anything over it. The only one who would hack my anything is my jokester friends.
