Get a C-Slide Webcam cover to put on your computer so hackers can’t use it to watch you.
There have been several reports in the news over the last few years about people finding out that someone had been using their webcam to spy on them.
With desktop computers that wasn’t much of an issue because the computer didn’t come with a camera already installed (usually) and if you did have a camera it was mostly focused on the area right in front of the desk. Which meant that if anyone did use it they probably didn’t see much.
On laptops and tablets (and other portable computers) there is more of a problem.
After all some folks even carry the computer into the bathroom with them. Or use them in the bedroom.
You might have your computer in the bedroom finishing up something while you are getting ready to go out at night…and if the camera is on folks could watch you change clothes and do your make-up (and yell at the dog for getting in the way).
There have been a few instances of people using webcams to see what their significant others were up to. Most of those relationships didn’t last.
If you want to make sure no one can spy on you with your OWN webcam…then you have to cover it up. I was using a folded piece of paper myself but it kept blowing off. So this webcam cover is really nice to have.
I put mine on my laptop as soon as I got it. It fits right over the camera and you can slide the cover open or closed.
The back is sticky and you just stick it on there. My laptop is black so the one I have is black. You can get them in other colors (white and silver at least). And they even have a version that has a mirror on it!
These fit on other things besides computers too. They fit on the Kinect, PS4, Smart Phones, and tablets/ipads.
You can get them shipped to you free in the U.S.A otherwise they ship using USPS Priority Mail and they offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee: If you are unhappy with your purchase they will send you another unit or a full refund.
You can purchase on C-Slide, Ebay, Open Sky, Etsy, and Amazon.
