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?

You're kidding me, right?

Why not just tin foil over it and call a spade a spade......

I'm curious as to whether the shutdown affected those who are employed to monitor such devices? What do you think?


Quoting Anonymous:

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.

No, that hasn't crossed my mind. That's a little paranoid.

For those saying it is bs and not possible, do some research. It is possible and happens all the time. Scary!

Well she worries for good reason because all of that is fact. My laptop doesn't have a camera though. If it did I might.
