Why cover your devices webcam?
Privacy and Peace of Mind is the utmost concern nowadays with all the electronic devices we carry. Everyone I know is concerned with the little camera in our devices and wonder if it is spying on us. The fact of the matter is that it is entirely possible. If our computer or mobile devices are infected with malware, the programmed code can easily use the Operating Systems features via API calls and query the camera allowing someone to watch without us ever suspecting anything.
Take for instance the cross-platform malware Backdoor.Mokes.a, which is able to run on Linux to Windows to Apple's OS X and is able to activate our computer's webcam. Even the world's most powerful law enforcement agency's director James Comey (FBI) stated that he places a cover over his camera and says "there’s some sensible things you should be doing, and that’s one of them … You do that so that people who don’t have authority don’t look at you. I think that’s a good thing."
Covering our webcam isn’t a substitute for keeping your systems patched via software updates and running effective anti-virus (although anti-virus is useless against sophisticated trojans and rootkits) but, if you’re doing both those things, it’s another layer of in depth that’s worth considering and easy to apply.
