Here’s Why You Should Cover Your Webcam

Hello there.

Have you ever seen people that will walk up to you and tell you to Cover your Webcam? Well, as creepy as it may sound, it’s been said by the FBI director James Comey while speaking at a conference in Washington.

According to James Comey, it feels very Sensible to cover a webcam at all times except you are in need of it. He compares it to locking the door of your house and I am certain that you will agree with me if you watch episodes of the series “Mr Robot”

Covering of the webcam is common practice in the spy world most especially in Silicon Valley. Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg, even goes a notch further by covering not just his webcam, but also his mic with a tape.
