I am often asked ‘Why do you cover your iPad camera with tape?’. The answer is that I do it to promote discussion on the risks of having an open web camera when you are not using it. Have a quick review: What are you exposing if some one else had access and control of your web camera?
When it is not too difficult for someone to have remote access via RAT (Remote Access Trojan) without your knowledge, and then they can remotely turn on your webcam, sometimes a simple solution is a good solution.
Are you going to tape your webcams?
