Webcam Covers that Slide Open or Closed Reviewed

Webcam Covers
I am a huge fan of webcam covers!  

For years, we have been hearing about hackers who can use your webcam to spy on you or your home & office.  Webcam covers allow us to take control of when our webcams can actually see anything.  There is no reason to leave an unwanted "eye" watching everything you do or spying on the activity, or lack thereof, in your home.  

I have webcam covers an all of my devices including my Kindle Fire & Ipad.  When I give electronic devices as gifts, I always include a webcam cover.  

Those little cameras in all of the devices are awesome when I want to take a picture with my device, or see friends & family when I talk to them. But, I don't always want them looking into my life.  

I frequently check my emails, work online, or play my video games without wearing makeup or making sure my hair is photo perfect.  I have no desire to have my "just out of the shower" image captured either.  

With a webcam cover, I decide when I am ready to be viewed.  I simply slide open the little cover to be seen, or otherwise leave it closed.  Just because webcams are built into electronic devices, doesn't mean we have to let them have constant viewing access. We are in control!

Using Webcam Covers

Webcam covers are extremely thin and do not impede your ability to open, close, or cover your laptop or electronic device. 

Upon receipt, you simply pull off the backing and adhere the open webcam cover over the lens of your webcam. You can see the webcam lens if the webcam cover is open, therefore proper placement is easier with the slider open. 

To use the slider, open the webcam "window" into your life when you desire and keep it closed when preferred.

Webcam covers may well be one of the best security investments you will ever make!  Plus, they are a very inexpensive accessory that offers tremendous peace of mind.

  1. Huh - I didn't know there was such a thing. Makes sense, though, as privacy settings are available and needed in other areas of our life. Thanks for introducing me to this practical product, Mouse.

  2. I did not know webcam covers existed but it makes perfect sense! I think I would like one of these for our devices. Thank you for your review and recommendation of such a useful product.

  3. Well thanks for the introduction. These are new to me too. Sounds like a great idea.

  4. Thanks so much for the reminder to install the webcam covers I purchased a while ago on the rest of my electronics devices! I stopped using the Alexa-enabled Amazon Dot we had been gifted when we realized the implications of having it always listening in, and these inexpensive webcam covers protect us from the visual equivalent of this unwanted potential privacy invasion.

  5. Well there's a handy item I didn't know you could purchase! That would look a lot better than the bandaid I have plastered on my laptop! So necessary to cover the camera, and this device would be great to open and close versus removing and replacing bandaids!

  6. I never knew these existed. What a useful product. This really happened to me, I was hacked a few years ago and the hackers turned on my camera. Ever since then Fran always sticks a post-it-note over the camera. What a handy thing to have. Thanks.
