The fix is very simple: Unplug your webcam.

Bingo! But problem is that on laptops, you can not unplug it... all you do is cover it up or close the lid.

People need to stop getting laptops to use as desktops they should be pointed in the direction of nettops. You should only get a laptop if you need it for things like work or school.

Why, what does that have to do with this. Just run security software and look at the light...

R.E. access lights, that works fine for anyone recording anything, if however you 'pulse' the webcam and take a single frame, chances are you wouldn't even notice the light at all.

I've fixed a few people's laptops with this in place. My first thought : "Paranoid much?" :p

This has been around for years, I actually tried one of the tools, something 7 it was called, way back before XP. You were able to open the cd tray with that as well as capture their keystrokes and screen, I think you were also able to capture their webcam but back then the transfer speeds and technology wouldn't have allowed video.

Never accept any files unless you know the person who sent them or what they are and use good security software and you'll be fine.

Or look for the light that says the cam is on...

That can be disabled.

SubSeven, that was the one! My ISP caught me using it cos it was rife at the time, they gave me a warning and I've not used anything similar since (apart from legit tools like Teamviewer of course)

Hoop your forehead goof. What a bunch of f'n nonsense. Another one of the dumbest things I've heard.

Ever thought maybe some people like to do stuff that requires lots of power, but they like to be able to take all that power with them if need be?

I've had 3 PCs and 6 laptops, and I'd never go back to a PC, absolutely pointless for me.

Mine sits in my TV stand, hooked to my TV, and when I go somewhere, I take it with me.

As for this thread, I couldn't care less if someone can see threw my camera. I have 3 all pointed at me, doesn't bother me at all, I ain't the paranoid type.

Did you read the last part it kinda says only get one if you need it which most people who tend to be victims of things like this don't need.

In my Laptop's UEFI bios, I can disable the web cam hardware. Haven't done it yet, but not too worried about it.

Black electrical tape would make the case sticky when removed if left on for some time. Would prefer to find a better solution if that became a regular issue.
