Why You Should Cover Your Laptop Camera

LaptopWhy You Should Cover Your Laptop Camera

I read a few months ago that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg puts tape over his computer’s webcam. Now, FBI Director James Comey recommends doing the same thing. He says, “There’s some sensible things you should be doing, and that’s one of them.” The reason why is that it’s relatively easy for hackers to hack into laptop cameras without users ever knowing. Travelers are even more susceptible since they are constantly moving and often using free Wi-Fi spots that are not secure. It’s a scary thought-and that’s why I’m putting tape over my camera right now. You might want to consider it, too.
