I would if I had one. You could keep it covered when not in use.

Cover it up...

I put black tape over it soon after I brought it home.

What about the audio even after you shut it right down, I've been wondering.

Re: Anyone here cover your laptop webcam?
LOL!! I thought I was the only one who put a piece of tape over my cam!

I thought the same thing when I saw those kids being spied on.

I told my husband I also think there are cams in the new flat screen TVs. I hate to sound paranoid, but now that you know the kids are being spied on ....what makes people so sure we ALL aren't being spied on?

Yeah I covered mine with a fortune cookie fortune that says "Things are not what they seem; it's not always that bad." I thought it was appropriate.

But yeah in regards to putting cameras in our TVs, thats straight out of 1984. How do people not realize this shit? Doesn't everyone read 1984 in highschool? Are people's memories that bad that they can't remember the book? WTF!!!????

First laptop I had, the camera was coming on every time I left the room. It would be on when I sat back down, but I had not turned it on myself. After scaring myself a few times by seeing myself on screen, I taped it over. Twice.

Next laptop, no webcam.

Do you really think "they" would have enough staff to sit around and monitor BILLIONS of people in their homes? Do you really think they would bother to watch the most boring people on the planet through their lap top webcams? Get a grip, there's a difference between taking notice and extreme paranoia.

Not saying they do, just that they could. Then if they have a purpose to do so, they might. Or if keywords spoken or typed on a computer, it may turn something on. If they wish they could go further.

Maybe.

No, but they may watch certain types of folks. Like ones that go to conspiracy websites and those who purchase certain things.
