    i have always had that thought in the back of my mind and im sure most of you have too. whos watching? that hole is creepy you have to admit. but its not all a conspiracy. theres alot of evidence and leakers whove admitted that people can hack into your devices. i originally saw a similar product like this on shark tank. it clipped over the camera and it caused your laptops lid to create a gap. which isnt good for the hinges. on tablets it works but it can fall off if you hit it by accident. and so targus has created the best of both worlds. it sticks on via 3m tape and is easily removable. ive had it on my computer for a month now and its stuck on there good. it has a little door that opens and closes without effort and it comes multicolored. originally it was 20-25 which is too much in my opinion but you can snag one online for 5 bucks which is a steal!

    Webcam cover

    I decided to purchase this item just in case. Sure enough, I recently got duped by hackers pretending to be from Microsoft. After our session was over, the hacker tried to turn on my webcam and thanks to my webcam cover, was not able to see me. I saw him and got him off my computer quick. Very satisfied with this item.

    The Spy Guard Webcam Cover does the job.

    The Webcam cover fits on any laptop. It fits right over the camera. No problem getting it attached to the surface of your laptop. It does help from others seeing you if you don't use the camera instead of using a piece of tape over the camera eye.

    I found these lying around in the electronics area & picked them up! Great deal for a 3 pack! I went back some weeks later to buy another pack and was told they don’t carry them in the store but online. Gee. Glad I found them then!

    Better option than tape

    I didn’t like the look of tape on my laptop, or the residue when removing and replacing after use of my webcam. This is perfect, and is small enough it doesn’t interfere with closing my laptop. You have to place it just right to avoid covering up the holes around the camera.

    It's not duct tape.

    The best thing about this product is what it's not: a post-it note, or any sort of tape! It certainly looks more presentable than any of the various makeshift methods of covering up the camera on one's laptop.

    This is a really simple and effective way to block your laptop's or tablet's camera if you're worried about activation by outsiders. We installed one for a 95-year-old friend (JUST getting on the internet for the first time), and he's happy as a clam.

    I have heard about people hacking into webcams, so I wanted to take precaution. I stumbled upon this product and had to get it. It's easy to install and use, and it better than putting tape on your camera. You can slide on and off the cover. Plus, for $10 you get 3 covers. Can't beat that

    I found this perfect for providing protection from a possible camera hack and it isn't noticeable on my MacBook Pro, but gives me the comfort of camera protection from unwarranted viewing should that ever become possible. Very nicely priced too!

    For those of us who require a webcam cover but still want to use our webcam occasionally this product is a must have! Can easily slide to reveal the webcam when necessary. I put these on all our laptops, have not tried on desktop webcams.

    This is the second time that I bought this very same product. The second purchase is a result of the very good experience of my family using the cover in their laptops.

    I work in an environment where we are not allowed to use cameras. This Web cam cover allows me to bring my laptop to work because I can cover the camera. It was easy to install and doesn't take away from the looks of the laptop.

    I got this for my wife and I for Christmas...It is something that pretty much everybody already does with a piece of tape or a sticky note, but this is so nice and neat and much more professional looking. Very happy with this :)

    My girlfriend is very scared that the FBI is watching her so I got her these webcam covers, she feels very safe with these blocking her webcam. Very easy to setup, works perfectly on MacBook Pro.

    This product was great! It came in 3 different colors for the different computer variations. I eliminated tape and replaced it with these tiny sliding camera covers. Works well for any labtop. Can hardly be seen.

    Great, inexpensive way to cover webcams on tablets and laptops. They slide so you can use the webcam if you want. Make sure the light sensor is not covered if using on a tablet otherwise your screen brightness will be low.
