I have a new laptop, it has a camera. I don’t like it one tiny bit. It makes me feel like someone is staring at me. I feel like, you know, all the whole google or government is spying on me bullcrap and I don’t care that you have to turn it on for it to be working I just want to cover it up. So what can I do to cover it up but still be able to use it to facetime when I want to. Would a sticker hurt the lens? I was going to put nail polish on it but I have nieces and nephews and soon to be grandchildren to facetime with so I can’t do that. So sticker? Or what?
Mark Zuckerberg uses insulation tape by the looks of it and I can only assume he knows more than me about it
My dad covers his webcams with black tape
A piece of cotton and fix it with tape
oh that’s a great idea
I use some play doh like stuff.
I don’t think it’s that paranoid! A lot of non sz cover up their camera too
No, I don’t think you sound too paranoid. You’ve reminded me that I need to put tape on my new computer, too, so I really appreciate this thread.
THis thread reminded me, I once got an email from someone who claimed they had filmed me through my webcam and they were going to send incriminating videos to everyone I knew if I didn’t pay them.
Considering all I do in front of the computer is vape and pick my nose, I decided to ignore it. I’ve got nothing to hide, and if someone wants to stare at footage of me digging for gold, go ahead
I take a piece of thick paper like part of an envelope, cut it into a small rectangle and tape it on with scotch tape. I can easily peel it back to use the camera if I want to. I do this with my camera lenses too.
Post it note 1515
I put a piece of paper on a bit of electrical tape and put that side against the lens then taped it down.
I do the same thing! I use an index card though!
Great minds think alike @Pinkbarbie23!!!
I use this blue tape to cover the cameras on my iPad.
I don’t use FaceTime on it so it’s fine.
I think that you can buy these removable stickers for your laptop to cover up the cameras.
Look on Amazon.
Wow!!! That’s really cool. And that makes me feel so much better too like I for sure am not the only one.
You’re not the only one. I use electrical tape over the front camera on my phone. I’m waiting for a cover to come out that fits.
@Wave I bought those before and they’re terrible.
