I actually knew this stuff already, but this is something we all should be aware of:

No worries... My laptop is a Mini Notebook and doesn't have a camera. And I only check my email on my Kindle, also no camera.

A school monitored kids on their school issued computers at home at some school near here. So heard about this a long time ago.

Dude. Those poor, poor hacking perverts. I tend to internet at night in the nude.

My little light next to the camera would turn on. Sometimes it turns on when I restart the computer but I close it out and it doesn't turn back on again

oh FUCK that noise. No school is making rules that apply to my home. 


Quoting NWP:

I keep tape over mine too and have for a few years now....and I am not a paranoid person.

Remember that high school that tried to punish a student for something they saw him doing at home through his school issued laptop that broke school rules?

That was my wake up call.

Quoting Veni.Vidi.Vici.:

I knew that, too. I have mine masked with scotch tape when not in use.

Oh yeah....once the media had the story the school got in a lot of trouble and I believe the tech guy was fired....but I might be confusing two stories together. It was a few years back and I can't remember that far. LOL

No camera.  Intentionally.

I don't have a camera on my PC and I wouldn't have one on a laptop either, I really do need to get another laptop, mine died a few years back. However, even if I had a laptop with a camera on it, anyone viewing would quickley get very bored as the only thing I ever use a laptop for is library research.
