Facebook's CEO And The FBI Director Have A Word Of Advice To This Girl Who Forgot To Turn Off Her Camera
In a world ruled by technology, it is an absolute necessity to be on your highest guard. Because nothing is ever really safe. Really.
While most of us have heard about hackers and whatnot, we turn a blind eye to it. As long as it's not me right? Well, you are wrong. Better to be safe than sorry.
Everyone has a laptop today, the windows that help us escape into the virtual world. But did you know that the mere ownership of a laptop puts your privacy at risk.
But first, let me ask you this....
Did you know that you are supposed to put a tape or sticker on your laptop's camera lens?
You didn't? Well, know you do and should follow it. Mark Zuckerberg does it.....James Comey, the FBI Director does it too. And the reason behind it will shock you!
By this one simple trip, that is covering your laptop's webcam, you are safe guarding yourself against hackers and intruders who might want to watch your private life and environment through your devices.
And it's not just that...
#2 A lot at stake
Comey explains that it is a common practice at the FBI and other government offices to cover computers and laptops' webcams with tape or any physical cover. He further adds-
"It's not crazy that the FBI Director cares about personal security as well,"he continued. "If you go into any government office, we all have our little camera things that sit on top of the screen, they all have a little lid that closes down on them, you do that, so people who do not have authority don't look at you, I think that's a good thing."
You need to protect yourself from the 'government' as well...
NSA and FBI are known for spreading malware to turn on devices camera to spy on targets. Edward Snowden Leaks revealed the NSA's Optic Nerve operation that was carried out to capture webcam images every 5 minutes from random Yahoo users, and in just six months, images of 1.8 Million users' were captured and stored on the government servers in 2008.
And also....there's this...... Check Ahead.
#1 Ummmm...this could happen
With the internet of things becoming a huge part of our everyday life....Hackers are using them to their convenience to spy on people's privacy. That includes your security cameras as well.
Also, there's what happened to this lady after she forgot to turn off her camera after a live streaming. She indulges in some sexual pleasure as the whole world watches.....Need more motivation to cover those cameras? I think not.
