With privacy being a top concern in our technologically advanced society, more and more every day, we are seeing the technology that is supposed to keep us safe, actually putting us at risk. We are already aware of the risks of doing anything online as hackers, spammers and phishers are waiting, ready to steal your personal information and wreak havoc on your life. Sure, you can purchase the latest software to protect yourself and your accounts online, but the hackers already have ways around that.
Identity thieves are getting smarter every day and what does that mean for you? It means that protecting yourself and your family online has just been taken to another level. These criminals could be looking right into your living room, watching you eat dinner, watching you interact with your family, even watching you while you read this right now! No, don’t look out your window because that isn’t how they are getting in. They are watching you through your webcam. You know, that sometimes used, but often forgotten feature of your laptop, smartphone or tablet? The new breed of cyber criminals are watching you using the technology that you already have in your home!
But my webcam isn’t even turned on; the light isn’t flashing. How can they be watching me? We hear this all of the time and the truth is, your webcam doesn’t have to be turned on for someone to look into your home or office. As long as you are online, your webcam is online as well and this poses a serious risk to your privacy. Better questions that you should be asking yourself are:
- Can someone hack my webcam?
- Can my webcam be hacked?
- Can people watch me through my webcam?
- Can someone spy on me through my phone camera?
The answer to all of these questions is yes. And that is something that you should get used to if you are going to stop these web spies from invading your privacy. What can you do to prevent this? You could stick a piece of tape or a Band Aid over your webcam and stop them from seeing you or your family. The drawback to that is there will be sticky residue on your expensive laptop or smart device that could be difficult to remove and it could take away from the innovative and sleek design of the product itself. The sticky residue will also adhere to your camera lens rendering it useless until you clean it with a harsh solvent. Effective yes, but not the only solution.
