Your device's webcam / cameras can be hacked - get protected

None other than the former FBI director James Comey recently recommended that we all cover our webcams with tape for security reasons. Comey believes that doing so is a simple step for people to "take responsibility for their own safety and security."

Apparently he doesn't want to be spied on and really, who does? In questions during a conference at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, Comey revealed that cam-covering is commonplace at the FBI and other government offices. "It's not crazy that the FBI director cares about personal security as well," he added. "If you go into any government office, we all have our 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 people who do not have authority don't look at you. I think that's a good thing."

Comey is also quoted as saying he got the idea when he saw "somebody smarter" covering their webcam with tape - that somebody possibly being Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, who was also noted to have a piece if tape obscuring the camera on his laptop.

Well, if one of the most secure law enforcement agencies in the world are concerned, and also cutting edge tech companies, maybe we should all consider taking steps to increase our security and deny hackers access to all the many cameras our smart devices feature. You may think that you're not worthy of being targeted compared to global organisations and the rich and powerful but you would be amazed what gaps a camera can fill in when hackers are looking to steal information from you. They can potentially gain access to your digital identity and then from there... the possibilities are quite chilling.

CNN has also reported that hackers have been streaming private cameras from around the world, invading privacy and sharing the footage live on a publicly accessible website.

With hackers carrying out more malicious attacks year on year and the governments of the world waking up to privacy issues with the introduction of GDPR, it has never been more important to be fully aware of your data security. Take an extra step to stop hackers with this Anti-Hack webcam cover.

Meet the solution to the problem

You can use a piece of tape of course, but we think you can do a bit better than that. An expensive piece of technology needs something more elegant, functional and long-lasting than a piece of tape. That's why there's the Olixar Anti-Hack Webcam cover. This is a low tech solution to a high tech problem and the premise is as ingenious as it is simple. You can mount the cover in seconds using the adhesive 3M adhesive surface. Once in place, you can slide the cover over your camera to physically deny access to it, then quickly slide it back to gain access to it.

Small, slim and discreet - case friendly and won't interfere with laptop closure

The cover is only 12.5mm wide, 7mm high and at 1mm thick is the world's slimmest, so will not interfere with your laptop closing, nor will it affect most cases for smartphones and tablets. What this means is that you can get on with your life and the Anti-Hack cover will slot in and do it's job without fuss or maintenance. All you need to do is slide it across as required - that's it. Need to take a selfie? Slide it open and snap away. Then close it when you're done. If you don't need your camera why not cover it up? And if you do, well, you can gain access to it in the blink of an eye.
