Are hackers using your webcam to watch you?

It’s surprisingly easy to hack a webcam.

How would you feel if you discovered someone was spying on you through your webcam?

One simple solution is to stick a post-it note over your webcam when you are not using it.


"Stephen, my sincerest thanks for your so gentlemanly and kind and professional attention to my computer, and all your advice on several issues, and for all that I have learned listening to you. And for the remote control link installed, comforting to have it there if assistance needed in future.
Mrs. B"

"I write to thank you for the fast and efficient service you provided getting my laptop computer back up and running. I was also pleasantly surprised at your very competitive price and would not hesitate to recommend the services of the Computer Advice Centre.
Yours sincerely

"Thank-you so much for your expertise in solving the myriad of problems with my computer. It was a relief to deal with someone with both the relevant experience and the ability to give me confidence and a clear understanding of how to keep my computer problem-free. Your expertise and jargon-free approach were much appreciated.
Mrs DW"

"Thank you so much for restoring health to our very sick computer. You showed a great deal of patience with both me and the computer which had been seriously infeted with a Trojan and which I had left hoping that the problem would solve its self. My children who are studying for GCSEs and A levels desperately needed a fully functioning computer and eventually it just ground to a halt. When I did got round to calling you, you attended promptly and dealt with the problem in a very logical way. You explained to me what you were doing and you gave me good advice on how to prevent such problems occurring in the future. I would definitely recommend you to friends or colleagues for your expert service and advice.
Thank you once again.
