this program is great for people's vanity. that is, they can feel important enough that someone actually cares what they do on their computer.

I agree with most of the comments!

The only reason software blockers my be of use is if they would also block the mic as well.
Both my laptop and desktop have tally lights next to the camera lens leting you know if camera is active.
I'd like to see all manufacters impliment this feature!

A slider would be great on new computers if it also would cut off the microphne as well.

Doesn't matter if you turn off the software in BIOS or DEVICES or UNPLUG IT. If you system gets compromised with a virus or HACKER the second you plug it in then there is nothing you can do about it.

My Advice. Don't use Webcam's.

$30 for this? You cannot be serious!

Why is tape over the lens not good enough? It works for Mark Zuckerberg!

I dont worry about my camera and mic being hacked. Who does that?

Dont you need a warrant signed by the Home Secretary?

peter, no warrant is needed when people simply click to agree to the End User Legal Agreement (EULA) or Terms of Service (TOS) or Privacy Policy. Try reading them, many firms DO do that!

Something that is often overlooked or is not known by many is that a speaker can be used as a microphone if not in use as a speaker at the time , might be difficult to switch but its possible . Just something to keep in mind when you are thinking about privacy .Also that a big brother owned or related programmer is responsible for some of the programs we download for free . sometimes even buy "MS ? "' (thats my name Micheal Seals )

I LOVE "security" software that can't even pass VirusTotal unscathed:

SHA256: 002d0c8c2713941981c8f10773544faf18b3cbf086bb1c8f682ff502a888df8d
File name: setup.exe ( ShieldApps-Webcam-Blocker-v1.3.4.exe from GOTD or the vendor's web site )
Detection ratio: 3 / 70
Analysis date: 2019-02-14 12:18:29 UTC ( 2 hours, 53 minutes ago )
Antivirus Result Update
DrWeb Program.Unwanted.3783 20190214
Palo Alto Networks (Known Signatures) generic.ml 20190214
Qihoo-360 HEUR/QVM20.1.38D9.Malware.Gen 20190214
__________

Anyway, I'd rather have a live report of what program or port or web address tried to access my camera and microphone.
__________

And of course, internal camera and microphone can be disabled in CMOS, Device Manager, and both can be blocked / muffled with tape, and, when disassembling for repair, can be unplugged altogether.
__________

Now, what I'd REALLY love to have is some security software watching and reporting on any malware trying to reverse my PC speakers or beeper to act as microphones ... ; - )

PS -- ShieldApps is a "white label" vendor, WE are not their customer, other vendors are their customers:

https://shieldapps.com/white-label-software-program/

Their goal is fear-you-are-not-protected-inducement at the POS Point Of Sale to scare vulnerable spontaneous purchases made by folks who haven't opened their hardware boxes yet and don't know that they do not need additional "shields" of any kind at any price because every piece of hardware has in-built "shield" capabilities at no extra charge.

Camera driver can be disabled at device manager. That's what I do.

Might be useful for home offices when you need to use your webcam for conferences frequently, but like most others, I just unplug it when not in use. Thanks, GotD, but pass from me.

The web-cam and mic is installed in Win10.
But I de-activated them in device control? Not remove, but de-activated
And there is a key on this laptop to en/dis-able the web-cam.
It looks like, this this program uses Windows to dis-able the web-cam:

TK, not very good option for people who use, say, Skype.

Reply   |   Comment by YK  –  5 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+4)

TK, I did check my BIOS today and nothing to enable/disable; nothing about webcam and other peripherals. Just a very little about Boot-sequence and something about CPU and memory.
If needed I can put a hardware switch in the cable.

If you want this the tape works fine for webcams or disable it in the bios if integrated

As for the microphone all you need is a 3.5 audio Plug (cut it off a old or cheap headset) and plug it in to the mic/aux Jack and any internal mic will be switched over to the external one which doesn't exist , they can't hack a mic if you don't have one anymore

Reply   |   Comment by Bobb  –  5 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+327)

P.S. when you need your Mic again all you have to do is take the plug out and the internal mic will be enabled till you put the plug back again ;)

My webcam is connected to the PC via USB. Actually, most of the time, it's not connected to the PC as I've pulled the USB plug. Problem solved. Money saved. Top privacy.

Reply   |   Comment by M. H.  –  5 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+335)

M. H., I agree, just unplug it. I don't even use my Web cam anymore for reasons everyone here mentions. Something people need to realize, you can disable it in bios, you can put tape over it, and you can unplug it all you want when it's not in use. But here's the thing "If you get a virus or hack you don't know about, when you plug it in to your PC to use it can still be used against you". This is why I don't use Web cams anymore. Even the best Anti-virus software can miss sometimes.
