Do you tape over your webcam?
 
That little all-seeing eye on the lid of your laptop, do you put a little sticker over it to stop hackers potentially spying on you?

Apparently Mark Zuckerberg does, and he's a trillionaire... coincidence??

I cover the camera on my iPad if I take it into the bathroom. :msnblush:

I work from home-office a lot, and don't trust the communications entirely.

Wouldn't like to be seen globally while on a conference call with the executive board in my bra and panties.

I have worked for customers who demanded me to do so while on their premises... but no, I don't do so myself. I however keep the camera of my smart TV closed (it slides out of the TV) as I don't trust those things as much as I do trust my computers. I actually like the way my surface unlocks by recognizing my face instead of entering a password.

I do, but not to get rich. I just don't want the competition to see the design of my foil hat until the patent goes through.

Head of the FXI puts tape over his webcam [1] but does not know why. He saw others doing and thought they are smart, so I'll copy them...

Only when masturbating.

I once taped over Match of the Day and got battered by my dad...

Mine's an old standalone that sits on a Sir Adric lego tin & frequently falls off. It has a cover that comes down over the lens. There's so much dust on it, it probably looks like I am in the desert. I think a hacker would have to be way beyond bored to want to spy on me anyway.

Where is the Yulin option?

Re: Do you tape over your webcam?
 
reminds me of a guy who went on shark tank with an inbention to cover the cam http://eyebloc.com/
unlike Zuckerberg I don't think hackers see any incentives to break into my laptop so no

Honestly, I didn't even know it was a thing. If someone hacked my iPad, he saw a hell lot of me. :eek:
