How important is your privacy to you? Keeping in mind the most liberal people all over the world, I’m pretty sure that no one will want their private time spent with their partners to be public. It is a very intimate session and no one, not even the closest person to you is allowed in that zone. But, with the advancement of technology, people have begun to share such private moments online through video calls.


Do you know how safe is that? Do you know how easy webcam hacking is? 
Unknowingly, millions of people fall prey to this every year and lots of webcam recordings make their way to the porn industry. Please keep in mind that the ‘virtual world’ sure is very helpful, but not at all trustworthy. Sure, long distance relationships are hard to manage. But would you risk everything for temporary temptations which can destroy the lives of both individuals involved?

It is Indi Viral‘s and my sincere request to everyone out there, to be very vigilant when it comes to your privacy.
So what can you do to protect yourself against webcam takeovers?
  • Update firmware. Webcams, like most standalone electronic devices these days, are controlled by their firmware, and this is where the vulnerabilities are most likely to crop up. Manufacturers will occasionally push out new firmware updates and, in general, it’s a good idea to stay up to date on those updates because they tend to patch bugs and holes.
  • Routine malware scans. Malware is a popular way for hackers to gain access to your computer, regardless of whether or not we’re talking about webcams. Keeping your computer clean of malware is one of the most important security steps you could ever take, so be diligent about it. I highly recommend Malwarebytes but there are other free malware removal tools that you can try.
  • Use firewalls. A firewall is one way to make sure the traffic going in and out of your computer is legitimate. An advanced hacker will be able to bypass a firewall, but it will provide adequate protection against most attacks.
  • Webcam protection software. There are programs out there that will reside in the background of your computer and notify you whenever your webcam is being used. This is a great way to stay safe since you don’t really have to do any extra work. I’ve never used any webcam protection software myself so I don’t have any I would personally recommend, but they do exist and they do work in theory.
  • Cover it, unplug it. If you’re lazy and you want to take the easy way out, you can always tape a piece of paper over your webcam when you aren’t using it. It can get a little annoying having to tape and re-tape it if you use your webcam regularly, but for those of you who just use it every once in a while, this could be the solution. An alternative would be to unplug it whenever you aren’t using it, but that wouldn’t work for built-in webcams such as those on laptops.
  • Stay alert. Usually, all webcams have an external light to indicate status. A blinking light when you are not using a webcam is a sign of something wrong. It could be that there’s something wrong electronically, but it pays to be on alert and take precautions.
  • Always assume the webcam is on. This piece of advice can get impractical at times, but it’s a good rule of thumb for most activities, for instance, if you are using your computer in the bedroom. Always close your laptop when you are not using it. Think of this one as a last resort tip.
