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?

No if I'm not on it it is closed. If someone wants to hack into my camera and watch me laughing or see my kidos studying that's on them but that is all they will see.

I did when I had my laptop.  I ended up getting a desktop and putting my laptop to use only for backup.  I have severe anxiety and can't even hang pictures of people on the wall.  It feels like they're watching me.  I had a bad experience with a picture in my great-great-grandma's house.  Everyone that saw that picture said it felt like the eyes followed them around.  After that I was always paranoid of pictures watching me.

Absolutely!

There were hackers who got into a baby monitor and was saying terrible things to the baby before the parents caught it.  And yes, the government, and any other hacking pro, can get in there, record you dressing, record your family, record what is in your home...Even the game consoles can do that.

And the government WILL and DO.  They listen and watch for anyone who may be against what the direction the government is heading.  They monitor.  And when they have what they need implimented, they will know who to go after to silence or make a point.

Don't laugh.  It's already happening.

Nope. My camera isn't even enabled. If they want to see my flab and stretch marks, they're welcome.
