You should cover your Laptop's Camera

A lot of people these days are using their laptops to do a lot of things on the internet. Laptops are being used a lot during these uncertain times. Laptops are busy so are hackers.

Hackers can access your laptop's camera easily without your knowledge , through dodgy email links, for example. You can click the link and something is installed when you're unaware. And then they can start to watch you using your laptop camera

Not just laptops you can be watched by hackers using your webcam and they can record you on the other side. Hackers can use malware to access the camera for computer-connected webcams.

Some laptop cameras are protected by a strong password and yet some are not. That's why you should protect your's if it's not protected by a strong password.

You can tape your camera so that hackers cannot see from the other side what your camera sees. Just don't use the clear kind. Some laptops come with a lid on the camera you can shut the lid when you're not using the camera.

You can also cover a laptop's microphone which can muffle the audio enough to prevent a hacker from listening in.
