Hackers can use your webcam to spy on you

Hackers can use your webcam to spy on you

In the recent weeks and months there have a phising emails doing the rounds, claiming that they have footage of you and if you don’t pay them, they would release the footage to all in your contacts lists.

Below are a few things you can do to avoid this….

Be extremely careful when opening emails and don’t solely rely on your firewall or antivirus to filter these kind of emails you have to do your part too, a lot of emails looks very genuine and if that email is asking you to click on a link for example to update your password, the best thing to do is right click on the link there you will see where that link actually takes you.

Another tell tale sign of a scrupulous email is when they start off by saying “Dear customer” and not your actual name.

All webcams should be covered up, pointed away or even disconnected.
