So far and yet so close: For many of us, webcams are now an indispensable piece of hardware on our PCs, laptops, or smartphones. Thanks to them, we can even hold long-distance conversations with others.

Scammers often use phishing emails to inject malware and hack your webcam. Phishing refers to the mass sending of bogus emails which cybercriminals use to obtain protected, sensitive information such as PINs, log in credentials, or bank details.

Time and again, cybercriminals manage to smuggle Trojans into software or apps so that we practically end up downloading the webcam-hacking malware ourselves onto our laptop, smartphone, or the like without even realizing it. You should therefore update your programs and apps regularly to fix any security flaws that may have arisen.

In early 2022, one case in particular caused a stir: Apple awarded college student Ryan Pickren a record $100,500 for showing the company that its webcams had a universal cross-site scripting bug that could be hijacked.

In many cases, it helps to shut down your laptop and, in the event that the webcam indicator light illuminates again immediately after restarting your device, to close down each program (or browser extension/add-on) in turn to pinpoint the culprit.

If you use strong passwords, cybercriminals have less of a chance of installing malware on your devices and then spying on you via your webcam. Many website operators give tips for secure passwords when registering or offer two-factor authentication (2FA) to improve protection of your online privacy.

If cybercriminals have nevertheless managed to hack an account and install malware to remotely turn on your webcam, the Pro version of Avira Password Manager can notify you so you can take immediate steps to change your password. Avira Password Manager can therefore help you strengthen your protection against webcam hacking.

Firewalls protect your device by monitoring traffic on your network and blocking suspicious connections. This can, for example, reduce the risk of you unsuspectingly visiting a fake website that hackers have set up.

Originally an antivirus program, this solution also comes with a firewall that can help you block suspicious connections or links from being allowed in the first place. In doing so, this program can indirectly help you reduce the risk of your webcam getting hacked.

A VPN (virtual private network) better protects your internet activity by encrypting all your data traffic. With Avira Phantom VPN, for example, you can optimize your security measures to protect the data you send and receive online. You can also reduce the risk of a malware attack that aims to spy on you via your webcam to compromise your online privacy.

hi I was wondering when you are online using it for skype calling etc video, I noticed at least on the quickcam pro 9000 I had a delay of about 3-5 seconds of an echo in my voice. And or it took about that long for the person to hear back of me? Now I have the logitech c920 and hopefully it is better. Is there a way to adjust something when your broadcasting live on internet skype whatever? If I was to come across that again? I tested this one out on the logitech menu and recorded a video and played it pack I did not hear the delay. I think it happens sometime of the delay being broadcasted live. DO you think I need an external soundcard that I could plug in with my USB microphone?

Spyware: Here hackers attempt to gather sensitive data about you, such as your log in details. They might use key loggers to record what you type and eventually have the information they need to log in to your accounts. In one example, the OSX/OpinionSpy spyware was stealing data from infected Macs and selling it on the dark web.

Ransomware: Some criminals use Ransomware to try and extort money from you. In cases like KeRanger hackers could have encrypted files on Macs and then demand money to unencrypt them. Luckily Security researchers identified KeRanger before it started infecting Macs so it was addressed before it became a serious threat.

Once a hacker has access to your Mac there are various ways in which they might try to gain information about you, or use the processing power of your Mac for their own purposes. As we mentioned above, in the case of spyware the hacker might attempt install a keylogger so that it can record what you are typing and look out for your password. The hacker could also attempt to highjack your mic or video camera.

If you think your Mac has been hacked there are a few ways to find out. First of all look for the signs: Has your Mac slowed down? Is your web connection painfully slow? Do the ads you are seeing look a bit more dodgy than usual? Have you noticed anything strange on your bank statements?

Many people cover up their webcam because you never know who could be on the other end watching. If a snoop gains access to your webcam, they might gather footage to extort, blackmail, or cause mayhem in your life.

The same viruses and malware that can steal information from your devices can also embed software that can record whatever a webcam sees. This might be activity that takes place in the comfort of your home or in the privacy of your workplace. If used for malicious purposes, a webcam could record sensitive moments or material, with the infected laptop sending the recordings back to the cybercriminal.

A webcam is one of the most important computer accessories and can be used in a variety of ways. It also poses one of the most serious threats to privacy invasion. If a second party gains control of your webcam, they can use it to spy on you, with potentially terrible consequences.

The little red/green/blue indicator light near the lens lets you know if your webcam is currently recording video. That means the light needs to be off when you are not using the webcam. If you see the light flashing, it means someone else is accessing your webcam.

Sometimes, the light stops working, and owners don't bother to get it fixed. But having a webcam with no warning light increases the risk of someone remotely controlling your webcam without your knowledge. So, whether you're using your laptop's built-in camera or an external one, it's a good idea to block it when you're not using it.

If someone is using your camera to record footage, a major telltale sign would be the presence of video or audio storage files that you did not create. Open the webcam recordings folder. Files you don't remember creating could have been recorded by a hacker using your webcam.

In some cases, your webcam may be running as part of an application you do not know. This usually happens when you download a virus or malware, and it takes over your webcam. To find out if this is the case, try to run your webcam.

See a message stating that your webcam is already in use? At this point, it's safe to assume that an application is controlling your webcam. You can find out which apps can access your camera by going through your system's privacy settings.

Additionally, launch Task Manager and select the Processes tab. There, check if the camera process is running. Sometimes, your system might launch the webcam utility when you restart it, so you shouldn't draw any hasty conclusions. Reboot your computer and check if a default setting starts the webcam process.

Webcams are growing more sophisticated by the day, which means they are capable of more functions. For example, webcams can move from side to side for better video capture, while built-in mics and speakers let them act as phones.

For example, in Windows 10 and 11, you can use the App history tab in Task Manager to see what apps are accessing the network. Monitor this to see if your webcam or an unknown application is sending data. Once you've found the program, use a malware removal tool to track it down and delete it.

You now know what to look for, so take appropriate steps to deal with the problem. If you can't guarantee the webcam is free of malware, consider buying a new one and make sure you're not turning your computer into an easy target for hackers.

Henceforth, everything changed. For 45 bucks, I halted the frightening downward trajectory of the appearance-based arm of my self-esteem. I recommend that you do the same, especially after numerous friends that I've spoken with have discussed also being emotionally terrorized by their webcams.

The second and even more whoa reason is that the cameras in our computers and on FaceTime make pretty much everyone look worse. The camera on an iPhone XS, for example, is equivalent to about a 26-millimeter lens on a full-frame camera, meaning that its angle emphasizes and visually enlarges the features in the center of your face. And I don't mean just a little bit: Your nose looks up to 30 percent bigger in a selfie taken with a phone! That's a considerable difference, and while, of course, there's absolutely nothing wrong with having a big nose, I don't think any of us want to be fed distorted images of ourselves that make any of our facial features look larger without our knowledge or consent.

And I soon found that not only did that lens, which is actually a super wide angle and macro lens set (they screw together), produce delightfully kickass scenery photography, instantly transforming the lackluster iPhone XS cam into a DSLR-level art machine:
