I've been doing it ever since that story of the woman whose vacuum (those little ones that move on their own) uploaded a video of her in the bathroom to Facebook?
she didn't know until it was on Facebook.
I was unnerved.
edit: the front
Do you have a link to the story?here's the link:
Risk having your junk streamed to Facebook or run around with the vacuum cleaner yourself.Robot vacuum cleaners are a god send if you are old or disabled.
Guess which option the lazy people choose.
the roomba incident was human sabotage. a contractor for irobot (maker of the unit) was in charge of handling certain data, including the photos that the R&D unit took. Some "rogue employees" (perverts) saw the pic of her on the toilet and manually spread it on SocMed.
my laptop has a physical slider so I can cover the camera, its just a built in feature
I've always put electrical tape over laptop cameras.
Zuckerberg does it, and it's not for no reason.
I guess I just have to accept that this is the world we live inNaw, you should take all reasonable steps to make yourself feel safe and comfortable, and try to encourage others to do the same without being weird. I feel that the pendulum will eventually swing the other way in the battle between privacy and convenience and "security".
I'm wondering how ancient all of your laptops are. I assumed all laptops these days came with a slider to cover the webcamI got my laptop in 2020. It didn't come with the slider cover for the webcam but I bought one for a few bucks that just sticks on.
does the electrical tape cause some kind of low frequency electro magnetic pulse?No, it's just really black.
