The FBI director, James Comey, has warned computer/laptop users to cover up their webcam everytime. The director warns that the rate of cyber attack this day could allow a hacker break into a computer and spy on a user.
Comey during the Center for Strategic and International Studies conference said;
There’s some sensible things you should be doing and that’s one of them. You go into any government office and we all have the little camera things that sit on top of the screen. They all have a little lid that closes down on them. You do that so that people who don’t have authority don’t look at you. I think that’s a good thing.
Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg recently admitted to closing his webcam in April. And also a video recently shared on Facebook saw the CEO tape up his cam.
