    I'm not gonna lie, I felt totally stupid paying for such a simple product. But, after installing it and using it a few times I was totally vindicated. It is great and very much a life changer for anyone who uses their laptop camera more than every once and a while. I previously was taking tape one and off and re sticking it on. If you are, as I was, concerned about your laptop closing with it on, I can confirm that it works on a MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015). Also, it comes with two others to give away to friends...

    Good price since there are 3 (if you need 3)

    Decent price since there are 3. Luckily we have 3 pcs with webcams. If only neesing one the price is a bit high for a simple plastic cover. Havent had long but so far the adhesive is holding well. The black and gray (silver) blend well with laptop colors. I dont have a white one so it stands out above the others. Previously thought they were silly and not needed but since discovering many apps and programs that can turn on the cams I feel more secure having them covered when not in use. Now to find something similar for cellphones!!

    I bought this webcam cover without researching first. Since it wasn’t expensive it was a good deal. Not as sturdy as I would like but works really well and comes in a pack of 3. Used on 2 laptops but not sure if I will use it on my IPad yet

    This product does what it is supposed to do and very easy to install. Simple design with three color options of black, gray and white. However, using it on a MacBook Air will leave a small gap when you close your laptop because the product is not that thin.

    They work fine, but be careful installing

    I am using these on a Dell laptop and an 12" iPad. They work fine, but be warned: make sure the mounting surface is good and clean. Also, the initial installation will feel like it's not really sticking. Be patient; the adhesive will eventually get stronger.

    This is a great item , I have installed it on my Mac computer and Microsoft surface laptop. I didn’t give five because on my surface the guard wasn’t long enough to cover the camera lens and the flash. So basically I eliminated the flash

    If you tend to be paranoid than this is a very simple and easy way of taking care of the problem Very simple to install and very simple to use simply slide back-and-forth if you want to use camera or not

    Bought these for all of my mobile, laptop & desktop devices. The one con I would say is that the slide is kinda flimsy so wouldn’t recommend for a tablet you make carry around as it’ll just slide open with ease while transporting.

    Bought this item for privacy. Got three in the pack to share with family. Self adhesive wasn't too secure. The item shifted a few times so I added extra tape to secure it. Otherwise I'm satisfied.

    Does what it is supposed to do. The only drawbacks are as follows: a little thick for my laptop, so it doesn’t close as completely as it used to, and the sliding portion is a bit flimsy, so it sags a bit.

    On the selfie side works fine. On the opposite a bit small for Samsung Tab A when under the cover. Placed up-down rather than side to side under cover to leave flash open and operational.

    This thing is amazing. Its held on by sticky pads behind it but it stays on my laptop pretty good. And if anytime i want to use the webcam, i just slide it. Amazing! Better than using sticky notes lol

    The package offers several colors to match your computer. The adhesive doesn't hold well on the thin sections of the cover. Other than this, it's does it's job covering the camera lens.

    Great to keep prying eyes hackers from watching you. Need to be sure your laptop will close, since some of them may be too thin for this product.

    This product works as expected. Make sure your laptop lid is flat by the camera. One of ours was curved and the product didn’t fit.

    This is a really simple and inexpensive way to protect your privacy (a bit) if you have a Web cam. Looks better than using tape!

    The product does as expected. Not hard to install, but the adhesive let's it move when opening and closing your laptop.
